Item Description: Attributed to G. Frere--Cf. NUC pre-1956
Schomburgk, History of Barbados, 1743, p. vii, refers to the author simply by his surname, remarking that he seems merely to have copied from Oldmixon and the "Memoirs of the first settlement of the island of Barbados."
"... there is little that the author can call his own. The greater part of it is a palpable plagiarism, and the adoption is rendered less valuable by the mutilated and imperfect state in which it was sent into the world."--Poyer, Hist. of Barbados, 1808, p. x.
