PENNANT - Jamaica

Hello,

I am conducting research on my paternal lineage of the surname Pennant from Jamaica, specifically the family from Clarendon. My Grandfather's name was William Pennant (the name that I know may be actually be his middle name) but died when my father was around 3. I do not know of any of my Grandfather's relatives but my research has led me to continue to trace in Jamaica and search in Wales, UK. From what I have gathered, there was a "house slave" known as Edward Pennant. I am inclined to believe that this may be an ancestor of mine as the Pennant Surname was not taken by anyone outside of the Welsh plantation owners during that time. Any information that anyone is able to share regarding this surname will be graciously received as I have hit a brick wall in my research.

Thank you.
