My great grandmother was Ellen Anderson. She lived in St Catherine, Jamaica. She later married Richard B. Martin and had several children. I don't have anymore information but I know there was a large population of Jamaican Anderson residing in St Catherine from the 1800s until.

Also looking for a Leonard Anderson who moved to England.
by: Anonymous

We are also looking for a Leonard Anderson from this area in Jamaica who moved to England. Do you know if your father had a wife named Icylin? Icylin was my grandmother who married and Leonard Anderson.

She was also from Jamaica, they married in England near Manchester and had a son named Louis Anderson. We are actually looking for Louis Anderson but are trying to track him through his father side as our grandmother is dead. ?She died in Manchester in 1986.
