My father Clifford Arlington Banfield born 1905. Father Edwin, mother Esther. Port of departure for New York USA was Grenada. He would speak of Trinidad, Barbados and Grenada. Two known sisters Ivy and Vivienne Blanch Banfield. Help with filling any of the blanks would be greatly appreciated.

Do you know if any other Banfields were ever mentioned besides those two sisters? My maternal great-grandfather, William Banfield also listed his point of origin in the British West Indies.

Hello,

The only siblings I can definately verify are the ones mentioned. William seems to be a common Banfield name so more information about him would be needed. The William that I can identify was married to Mary Bradshaw who died in 1910 and William's death was in 1884.

I would suggest the website "Ancestry.com" if you would like to delve into your family history. Some libraries provide free access to that site.

Currently I need to connect Edwin (my grandfather) who I never met into my website.

Good Luck!
