My Williams go back at least to the mid-1800s with Daniel, Robert, Williams and 5 others in Clarendon...likely Richmond Park. The area is close. There may be a connection.

Hi,

I hope you were successful with your search. I saw that a "Melodye" responded with some insight. I was tickled to see that several of the names shown in your inquiry were known to me. I am referring to Ivan Williams and his brother Max Williams. I also knew the wives of both men except that Max Williams' wife - as I knew her - was "Jane". She may have been a second wife.

I lived right across the street from Evon Williams and his wife Ruby. I was a very young kid when Ms Ruby died. "Mass Ivan" is how I remember referring to Mr. Williams. In fact, I feel a little strange now learning and adjusting to "Evon". I remember as a boy (probably under 10) when his children would visit. As I recall, some lived in England. He had a daughter who was a nurse in Mandeville. I last saw "Mass Ivan" on a visit to Jamaica in the late 90s and I learned later, sadly, that he died.

For the record, I now live in the US. A stepdaughter of Mr Evon Williams with whom I am in touch lives in Boston. She is the daughter of his "common-law" wife. Mass Ivan raised from a very young age - maybe 8 or 10 - to adulthood.

I also remember other relatives of the Williams such as Walter Allen and Johnny Allen who also lived in Coleyvile.

Take care and good luck.

I missed the message from Melodye. Did the response include information on Daniel, Robert, etc from the 1860s?

I am also trying to find some Williams, didn't know that there were any in Coleville although I know the place.

But you mentioned Richmond Park and my side is from there, great grandfather was Robert, I think, grandfather was Uriah, was told that he had some Irish blood, don't know how much truth in it but the family i have met would indicate that there was some mix.

Was also told that there were about 3-4 brothers, so they could have populated the island between them.

He went to Cuba, came back, and had about 23 children with a number of women.

If this rings a bell it would be great to hear from anyone who might know anything.

Hello my name is Yetunde Abiola and I am related (on my maternal side) to the Williams Family of Manchester and Saint Ann (some also resided in Clarendon).

My Great Grandfather is Charles Adolphus Williams, one of at least 4 brothers. The others were Frederick, Benjamin and David. They had sisters too I believe.

Their father was Robert Williams.

Do any of these names, or places ring a bell for any one?

Looking forward to connecting to anyone who as any info to share, of course I am happy to do the same :)

Hi Skisquash

This is very interesting indeed, I am sure there is a link somewhere.

1. Was Thomas and his clan Black or were they Jamaican White?

2. Where in Clarendon did they come from?

3. Were they a Planter Family?

4. Thomas the Father - what was his wife's name?

I think it is possible Thomas may be our Robert's brother. I will be copying in mu cousin Aduku Addae on this, he is more knowledgeable than I am.

Waiting to hear from you again very soon...

Robert Williams (born c.1820) and his sons Henry, Benjamin, Frederick, David and Charles are linked by birth and marriage records to Topsham, Devon, Comfort Hall, Somerset, etc. They are also linked to the Green Pond and Robins Hall estates by oral history and by vital records. Any commonality there, Skisquash? Do tell.

Respect,
AA
