Brian--My cousins wife, in researching the Clednaiels, also came across the Clendaniel name in a ship' slog of passengers to the Carolinas. What we've been able to summize is this:Clendaniels may have entered the Carribean via slaves ships that also carried people interested in the New World who were thus endentured servants as part of the contract to pay their way. When cost of the passage was paid in full, Clendaniels then travelled via slave ship to the Carolinas to continue their new lives. There is another possible but unlikely scenario; that Clendaniels were landholders in the Carribean and sent one of the male children to the colonies to secure additional land to grow grains for bread which could not be grown in the tropical climate. According to one researcher this was rather a common connection between properties in the colonies and the Carribean.
