Three documents are presented, with an introductory text, illustrating the treatment of Quakers as conscientious objectors in the West Indies (under English rule) in the second half of the seventeenth and early part of the eighteenth centuries. The documents relate to militia sufferings in Barbados, 1678–86, and Jamaica, 1683–91, and to alternative service and the Quakers of Antigua.
