Crawfords of Malvern St Elizabeth
by: Maggie

I am familiar with the Crawford family of Malvern St Elizabeth. Richard Alexander Crawford married Anna Thelwell and had several children. I believe his father was David originally from Scotland and England. I know nothing about them prior to the marriage with Thelwell. I do not know the name Vincent but he could be related.

Robert Crawford
by: Sue Scotland

Hi Joann,

I'm a direct descendant of Robert Crawford, as mentioned in the entry dated 30th Jun 2010. My Dad told me that Robert and his brother James had many children so we may all be distant cousins! He was born in Govan in 1782.
We found a lot of info on the Church of Latterday Saints website. I also spent some time browsing at the public records office in Edinburgh on Princess St.

I think here are talking about my family
by: Richard Crawford

Hi Joan
My name is Richard Crawford, I am Colombian.
My grandfather was: Tallant Adoulphus Crawford Thelwell. His father was Richard Alexander Crawford. My grandfather was born in Kingston on December 2, 1896 (still keep your passport). He arrived in Colombia in 1930 or so.

His maternal uncle, Aubrey Spencer Thelwell, who also had raised him, first came to Colombia.
My grandmother told me many stories that my grandfather told her about Jamaica and her family, including that he had a brother or cousin named: Glanville Crawford. In fact my father has a brother named: Tallant Glanville Crawford.

And my father's name is Duncan Spencer Crawford. Maybe you have similar names to those on your list of family members.

I really draw attention Glanville both born in 1902 and 1941 respectively, and that since the year my grandfather was born and since that he always claimed to have 6 brothers, I am not surprised that he has had kinship with the "Glanville "born in 1902.

I hope to have contact with you because I've always wanted to know my roots in Jamaica.

Crawford family
by: Joan

Peter thank you for your comments. I have no idea who the Crawfords are (my father's family)except for the little I discovered recently.
I will look into the information you supplied and hopefully I will get something to go on.

To add to Joan, comments
by: Peter

I,m a Kingston Crawford my G/father Walter David Crawford and my GG/Father David Goodwin Crawford are all buried at the Moravian church in NewPort Manchester this would be a good place to start as this would take you back to late 18 and early 19 cent. I believe the church records may still be there.

I almost forgot there was a General Robert Crawford who was one of the people given credit for forming the Parish of Manchester and creating the town of Mandeville (Ref : Jamaica family )is also another good place to start.

Crawford Family
by: Anonymous

In researching further I found that my gg/father was Richard Alexander Crawford and his father was David. David may have gone to Jamaica in 1835 as a planter. I found two Glanville Crawfords; one with a dob of 1941 and the other 1902. Its more than likely father and son. I know for a fact the one with the dob of 1902 is my father's uncle. Let me know if these names mean anything to you

Still looking for info regarding The Crawfords from Rowes corner, Alligator pond. There is a high chance that Glanville/Grandville (on the passenger list)could be my uncle. I'm still keen to find living relatives.

If you are still searching for Crawford leaving Jamaica in 1960, I found a passenger list for Glanville Crawford, born February 1941 arriving Southampton England in Oct 1960. My research show him being married. I would love to talk to you about this. Please comment.

Hello I am a Crawford living in Gloucester UK. The Crawford's family is very big. I am from those from the Manchester area in Jamaica. My grandfather told me quite a lot about the scattering of the family he did say there were some in Alligator pond. That is all I am able to say now my number is 07864290466.

If you are certain of those ages, then I can tell you they are not the same. The people I am referring to are much older. Sorry for the confusion and good luck with your search.

I will keep these name in mind and if while I am doing my research I find anything on them I will contact you.

All the best.

? ???? Brother or relative called Dullivan
by: Anonymous

Hi again

Thanks for your reply. I know your aunt is reluctant to give you more information but there is one point that she may be able to clear up. My father was called Dullivan (age approx 65-67) and his elder brother was called Granville( age approx 69). If she confirms that Dullivan was her brothers name or even one of her relatives then I will know if I am on the right track.

Crawford family search
by: Joan

Hi there:

Unfortunately, I do not have the information you require. The only living aunt I have is reluctant to give me any information. (don't know why) However I am comntinuing my search and if I am able to come up with any information I will communicate it to you. She did tell me that one of the brothers moved to Columbia and could be deceased.

Have you tried the Jamaica telephone directory for St Elizabeth? The Crawfords I am related to came from Malvern in St Elizabeth and were part of the Moravian religion. I understand Malvern and Alligater Pond is in the same vicinity. I have been living in Canada most of my life and I am not familiar with St Elizabeth area.

Hi Joan

I'm not sure if Granvile had sisters but he did have a younger brother. Do you know Granvile's date of birth or his brothers name?

Re Granville Crawford
by: Joan

I am not sure I can help but I am also researching the Crawford family in St Elizabeth. I am told my Grandmother Anna Crawford nee Thelwell had four children: Lillian, Amy Granville and another son. Could this be the same family?
