title Carrington's Journal: The 1837 Visit of a Barbados Planter
creator Carrington, Nathaniel T.W.
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description Nathaniel T.W. Carrington (1801-1855), a Barbados sugar planter, sailed with his wife and son from Bridgetown in May, 1837. Before he returned to his home eight months later, he travelled to Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Boston, New York and Philadelphia. In addition, for five months the Carringtons boarded at a farm in Newton, Long Island (now part of the borough of Queens, New York City). The purpose of the sojourn was the restoration of Mrs. Carrington's health. Nathaniel Carrington landed at Halifax on June 14th and after touring that city, decided to accompany his fellow Barbadian, Reverend John Packer, on a visit to Prince Edward Island. Carrington's journal, it should be noted, was written for his children and never intended for publication. It is now the proud possession of his great-grandson, Roger C.E. Carrington, a solicitor, of Hampshire, England. In transcribing the manuscript, misspellings have been corrected and brackets are used to indicate insertions by the editor.
