Jamaican Last Names
In reference to the Jamaican last names
Glad to see that my maternal grandmother's maiden name (Anderson) is so popular.
She was from Portland, Manchioneal, I think. Maternal grandfather (Thompson) also on the list, again from Portland. Impressed! But no Watson?
I'm surprised not to see my paternal grandfather's name here. It's quite common in St. Elizabeth and St.Thomas I believe?
Can you shed any light on the surname Hollis?
This is my paternal grandmother's surname, but I can't seem to trace it at all. Dad's side of family is St. Thomas.
