This map of Barbados is interesting for what it leaves out as well as what it shows. It claims to show ‘every Parish, Plantation, Windmill, Watermill and Cattlemill...and all things...Remarkable’ according to an ‘Exact Survey’. The map does contain a wide variety of information about society and politics in Barbados. Surprisingly, however, the mapmaker has left out a number of important places. Although King Charles II had commanded that the island’s many churches and fortifications be shown on the map, none of them are actually mentioned. Richard Forde, who made the map, was a Quaker, and a pacifist, and he disapproved of the established English church. He therefore decided to represent Barbados as if the churches and fortifications did not exist.
