MCCALLA - Jamaica, Bellas Gates

Postby jpmccalla » Fri Jun 24, 2011 8:38 pm

My family is from the island. I still have family there on the island. My grandfathers name is Izett Montrose Ephram McCalla. Any information in reference to this would be quite helpful. I keep hearing about brothers from Ireland that came to the island years ago. If anybody has time frames and peoples names who could even be slightly associated with the clan, it would be quite helpful.

Sincerely,

Joshua McCalla :D

I am just starting my search on my maiden name, McCalla. My grandfather's name was Felix John Samuel McCalla, he lived in Grierfield, Moneague, St Ann, Jamaica, but I often heard the name Bellas Gate mentioned so I suspect he had some connections there. He was married to an Ida (?) Brown and died in 1959. He had 8 children - Sidney, Leslie- Gladstone, Harry, Clarice, Ruby, Hilsa, Birdie, Polly. Polly and Hilsa are alive and living in the States.

My father, leslie ( Gladstone), married to Beryl Joyce Wiles originally from Comfort Hall/ Evergreen, Manchester and they have 5 children - Milton, Paulette, Jennifer, Alice, Mike - who all but one currently reside in the USA. I reside in the Cayman Islands. All the children attended Ferncourt High Sch, CAST, UWI. I think all McCallas are related and though I rarely meet people with that surname here, it would be interesting to know more about my great grandparents and any unknown relatives.

Hi Jenny, my name is Sheryl McCalla and Sydney McCalla is my dad. His siblings that you mentioned I do know personally. I also saw a blog where you were speaking with someone by the name of Janice which I believe is my sister. My sister and I have been searching and came across this site. Please let me know if we can talk privately. Thanks.

I would just like to leave you with this thought... the more names and places you leave in public here, the more there is for the search engines to connect you with others are are still looking - now and in the future.

So - when you are done corresponding in private - it would be to your advantage to add the extra details you have discovered in a public Post.

Again, best wishes...
