My Badwah ancestors resided in Manchester, Jamaica in the 1800s and early-mid 1900s. The name has been spelled as: Badwah, Badwa, Bodwah, Bodwa

I can't find out when they arrived in Jamaica, but I do have some basic information. I'd love some help determining where in India they came from and more details on their story.

2) Walter Badwah 1886-1932
3) Bertia Ann Badwah 1890-?
4) Rebertha Badwah 1891-1903

Walter James Badwah is my great-great grandfather. He married Mary Badgnauth (sp?) in 1912 in Saint Catherine, Jamaica and had twelve children together.
