This family assumed the name of Cumberbatch. Traditionally they believe themselves to be descended out of Cheshire. They have possessed lands in Barbadoes since the time of the Civil Wars, and these, or some of them, are now the inheritance of Mr. Abraham­ Carlton Cumberbatch, late Consul at Constantinople. Beyond the foregoing particulars, placed in the form of a tabular pedigree, I have been unable to ascertain anything about them, although several members of the family have very courteously afforded me all the infor­mation in their power.
