(p.152) Chapter Eight. Creating an Orderly Society
'Englishmen Transplanted'


Oxford University Press

This chapter reveals the extraordinary efforts English planters made to replicate on Barbados the ordered society of their homeland, where deference to superiors and authority were an expectation. Immorality, threatening language, vagabonds, and rebellious servants and slaves all received the attention of government and church leaders. Planters also sought to replicate other important English ways: house design, furnishings, apparel, and diet, along with the tradition of aristocratic hospitality.

Keywords:   deference, order, hierarchy, disorder, church leaders, government, family, English ways, hospitality
