Edward Cranfield (?1641-1700)

Edward Cranfield was born at unknown date, probably in Barbados, the son of Edward Cranfield and Elizabeth Parker. He was born after his father’s arrival in Barbados in 1633 and before his father’s death in 1649.
Edward Cranfield was raised in Barbados and appears to have been resident there as late as 1662 when he sold 360 acres of land to Nathaniel Kingsland for “a valuable sum of sugar” (Genealogies of Barbados Families p 371). By 1663 he was in London when he launched a suit against his uncle Lord Morley concerning the administration of the affairs of his mother Elizabeth, who had been declared to be a lunatic and had left unadministered parts of his father’s estate (Lords Journals v XI p 574).
