“Encompassing biography, Atlantic world historiography, and genealogy, In search of Barnabas Horton is a twenty-first century guide to Barnabas Horton of Southold, Long Island. Traditional myths collapse under historical evidence as the author traces Barnabas’s life and times from the Midlands of England to his waning years in the turbulent Province of New York through a wide range of church records, legal documents, and social histories. This narrative includes a discussion of Barnabas’s nine children and their familial, if sometimes feisty, relationships with each other, neighbors, and civil authority” — Publishers Description
