Re: Campbell - Darian - Panama - Jamaica

You can find info on John and the Campbells of Jamaica, including wills transcribed, on jamaicanfamilysearch.com website.
For a small fee you can search information. Also you can google John Campbell+Jamaica. Campbell is one of the most common names in Jamaica. Good luck.

Re: Ruddock/Riddock Family Jamaica

Cloustan, thanks for your post. Just came across it. I wonder if there is a link here?
Please send me what you know of the Orkney connection. Maybe we can help piece this all together.

RUDDOCK/RIDDOCK, Jamaica- Westmoreland

It is said that all Jamaican Ruddocks are related.
The name has a Scottish connection.
It is said that 3 Riddoch/Ruddock brothers emigrated from Scotland. One went to Jamaica, one to Trinidad/Tobago and one to the Bahamas probably in the mid to late 1700s (? John, Colin and Alexandar ???)

Ruddock/Riddock Jamaica, Westmoreland,

It appears to me from my very preliminary research that the Jamaican Ruddock ancestor name was "Riddoch". Other versions of the name in Jamaica since the 1700s: Ruddock, Riddock, Ruddick. Currently mostly Ruddock.
