Re: WILES - Jamaica

Many thanks for this. I was wondering as well, about the possible connection with this Abel prize winner, Sir Andrew Wiles. It would be good to know. Something tells me that all Wiles are related. My grandfather was Johnny Wiles, a tailor who worked on Harbour St. in the 50's and early 60''s ( ?) a...

I've been researching the Wiles family for the last 8 years, my mother is direct descendant of Edward Octavius Wiles through her maternal line, which makes the James Wiles you mention (botanist) ...

Re: WILES, EMSLEY, COX - Jamaica (and London)

Re: WILES, EMSLEY, COX - Jamaica (and London)

Re: WILES, EMSLEY, COX - Jamaica (and London)

Dear Colin, Thanks for replying with the interesting link to a letter to Matthew Flinders. I did find that James had written about the Death of Pappo in another document. The Pitcairn Islands Study Centre has the original handwritten copy of this letter. I have found that James Wiles did have two pl...

Re: WILES, EMSLEY, COX - Jamaica (and London)

Elizabeth Wiles (b. 1809, d. 1889) I have received a Wiles Tree from a Wiles descendant now living in the USA, born in South Africa. I didn't have this information in my papers but on her family tree, I can see Elizabeth (1809-1889) married to Joseph Elmsley (b. 1809, d.?). Elizabeth's parents are H...

Re: WILES, EMSLEY, COX - Jamaica (and London)

Hello Colin and John, Not sure if you are reading posts anymore, as the last date is 2010. I have been off on another Wiles tangent, tracing whereabouts of family letters and trees to prove all of these questions. As it turns out, they are interred at Cambridge and Oxford University Libraries. They ...

Re: WILES - Jamaica

Hello Alan, You've made contact with me via Ancestry.co.uk now, but I went back to your post here in relation to a post I put a couple of years' ago. These relatives I haven't heard of but it is interesting that you have found Edward Octavius Wiles, who is my Gt Grandfather. I find it very hard outs...

He arrived on HMS Providance as the botanist for Captain Cook, bringing breadfruit to Jamaica. I have it recorded that he married and had 6 children but cannot find any records...
