Springhead Plantation

The Springhead plantation, in St. James has been owned since the mid 1600s. It has changed hands several times throughout the years, from that time to the 20th century.

The plantation was owned by two of the richest men of their time, Samuel Osbourne (or Osborne) and Sir Philip Gibbes. Samuel Osborne owned Springhead and other  plantations in Barbados.

Sometime in the 1750s, Philip Gibbes married Samuel Osborne's daughter, Agnes, so he inherited Springhead & Taitts plantations.  He also issued a copper penny token sometime in the 17th century.  Philip Gibbes received the Baronetcy in 1774.

Sir Philip Gibbes' father, also Philip arrived in Barbados in the 1600s. Sir Philip Gibbes was born in 1730, died in 1815 and we believe his remains are in a vault at St. James Parish church.

We have no record of the number of slaves on the plantation, we do know that they existed here to work at producing sugar for their masters.

The Springhead Plantation House is completely renovated, modernized and is available for rent.
