I am trying to descover why and how Rowland/Rouland Greatbach and his brother Thomas came to be in Bermuda and possibly be born there in around 1650. Does anyone have a copy of Mercer's Bermuda Settlers they could check for me? I would be so grateful. Thomas subsequently moved to Carolina with his family.
I have found a possible father - a Daniel Greatbatch was was a leiutentant in the British army based on St Kitts. Not knowing much about the geography of the area I'm not sure how likely this would be.
Thank you very much in advance.

I found a Rowland and Judith Greatbatch in bermuda around 1620. They must be related. I read Thomas Greatbeach's will and he mentions his son Daniel and well as his brother rouland and Rouland's son Daniel. I would also like to know their connections in England came from.
