GRANT, GORDON, GORDEN - Antigua, St. Vincent, St. Lucia

In spite of being a Grant by surname, I am evidently, according to the Family Tree DNA matches, a Gordon.

"Something", and not sure what occurred, but probably in the late 1600s or early 1700s, to make that happen. However, following my Grant (Gordon) surname, I followed my ancestors to Effingham Howard Grant of London who I have established by documentation to have been born in Scotland in 1776.

At that point I have lost any written proof of further linage. Perhaps he is the Effingham Grant of Carron mentioned in Fraser's, The Chiefs of Grant, but my search has stalled at that point for lack of documentation.

Having said that, in "The History of Antigua" by Oliver, Effingham's uncles and brothers are mentioned quite prominently in the late 1700s and early 1800s. My search now turns to finding out whether any descendants of these Antigua, Saint Vincent or Saint Lucia Grants has submitted any DNA for testing or locating one and asking him to do so.

Any thoughts?

My grandmother: Emmaline Lucetta Grant, born in St. Lucia married Thomas Augustus Higgins from St. Vincent. They went to Panama for the Construction of the Panama Canal.
