I am a second cousin to the children of Harry Jones and Joan through Joan's mother, Amy. Amy was a sister of my paternal grandfather, Julian Victor Davies Grell. If I could figure out how to attach a picture here I could send a picture of me with Rodney, Challenor, Felicity (FiFi) and Marilyn, as well as one of Chally's children, Jonathan, and another second cousin, Teddy Grell, grandson of Amy and Julian's brother, George. The picture was taken in Barbados last month.

George, Julian and Amy's father, Anthony Andrew Grell, is buried in Westbury Cemetery, Barbados. Amy's grave is there along with the grave of another brother, Jesse, who was a doctor in Port of Spain, and and a sister, Louise, who never married and lived in Barbados.

The family has stong links to Dominica where A.A. Grell was born and where, perhaps, all or some of his 10 children were born. There are still Grells on Dominica and Bellots who are all descended from Jean Grell who emigrated from France and settled briefly on Guadeloupe. Eventually, he relocated to Roseau, Dominica.

Some other names connected to Grell: Sladden (Tobago), Valverde and Keeling (Barbados), Seon (Grenada).

I am actively researching my Grell ancestors who have links to at least 7 Caribbean islands. Please feel free to contact me if you want more information.

Apart from being the Owner/Administrator here, I was was the one who Posted the search for Henry "Harry" Milton JONES of Trinidad (actually of Guiana/Guyana originally).

Joan Lynch's father was my great-uncle - his brother was my grandfather.

I am the family genealogist, collecting as much family tree information as possible in a non-traditional format - in other words, I accept and record all connections in every direction as long as there is a familial relationship.

With contributions from others my database has grown to almost 23,000, although I am sure some of those will be duplicates. The database is here...

Here is what I already have of the Grell family... I would very much like to have anything else you can pass on, and if you would like to become one of the users of my family tree on-line and to add/modify family information yourself please register using this form...
