Looking to find info on my gt gt gt grandfather Joseph King Barnes born in St Kitts in 1843. He was son of a West India merchant Joseph king Barnes who died in Covent Garden, London in 1871.
Although born in St Kitts, Joseph was living in England by the 1861 census and became a teacher in Bedford.
I want to find out more about his family. Where was his father from originally, was his mother's maiden name King, was there a connection to bedford or was this just where his teaching job took him?
Any info gratefully received, or ideas about where to look for info re St Kitts.
