Thanks very much for that very interesting extra background, Regorian!

Philip SHIER junior, miller: "Of Lyme Regis, absent, supposed."

Looks like neither suffered in the aftermath...

There is a book , free to read , on the site
                    babel.hathitrust.org
which lists the "rebels" who were convicted & then transported to Barbados in 1685 .
Along with their names are their ages , occupations , which prison they had been held in , which ship they were transported on & from which Port , the name of the ship's Captain , and if they survived the journey ( some died & were " buried at sea " - those that died en route are also named )  the date when they arrived / were delivered in Barbados & the name of the person who bought them.
There is also a list of names of those that " survived " their 10 year sentence and were allowed to buy passage from Barbados , with dates , names of the ships and their destinations - some returned to the U.K. but most who left Barbados went to the U.S.

Hi, Everyone,
Have just purchased a copy of the book: "The Monmouth Rebels", compiled by W. Macdonald Winfield and published in 1985.  It lists all the Rebels rounded up and tried at the infamous Bloody Assizes all over the West Country after the battle of Sedgemoor in 1685.  Most of the individuals are from Somerset, though of course there are others from Devon and Dorset, and a very few from Wiltshire and Hampshire.
If anyone suspects they may have had family members from this time involved in this desperate episode in English history, I'm more than willing to look up any reference to them in this book...
Very best wishes,
Keith

Hi again, Matthew,
I'll PM you with the details given on all the individuals I mentioned, and you can then see whether any of them fit into your family anywhere…

Hi Keith

It's been a while since I looked at this board and I've found out a bit more about the families I mentioned. Would you mind resending me the details you found regarding the name Dyke please?

Many thanks

Matt
