Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Hello Angus, Thanks very much for offering to help with my Campbell ancestors. The Archibald Campbell of Asknish plantation in Jamaica was my 4th great-grandfather so it sounds like we must be related. I'm very eager to learn what you know about my Campbell ancestors. Best regards Tim Hall Chula Vis...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Hello, I've received the results of my ancestry.com DNA test. They indicate that 1% of my "markers" trace back to Senegal, which would be reasonably consistent with having 1 African 5th great-grandparent. One of my Hay cousins has just volunteered to take the test, so if she also comes back with rou...

Re: ALLEN - Hanover, Jamaica

I have Allan ancestors (note spelling) who lived in the Hanover area in the 1820s before returning to Scotland. John Allan married Mary Campbell. At least 2 of their children, including my great-great-grandmother Sarah Ann Allan and her sister Isabella, were born in the Hanover area between 1823 and...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Thanks Malcolm. This is certainly interesting. All of those similar names (especially the more "distinctive" names like Trafford Campbell and Archibald Campbell Allan), and the references to Ask(i)nish, sure seem to be trying to tell us something. It seems like we're just one or two pieces of inform...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Hi Peter, I haven't had much luck in that regard. The 1841 census record listed everyone as being born in Scotland. As far as the 1851 census goes, Archibald Campbell Allan was already dead. I do see potential matches for John in 1851 and 1861: Possible match in 1851 census for Paisley Middle Church...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Thanks very much, Peter. This is very, very interesting. Holding this up alongside the other records, it looks like the marriage was "recorded" upon John's return to Scotland in 1829. That leaves me with a few mysteries... (or some slight reinforcement of my flimsy trail of evidence, depending on ho...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Thanks Peter. Curiosity got the better of me again. Checking the almanacs/slave records, I see the following: Archibald Campbell appears at "Dunalva" for a few years (1811-1817), then at Ashkenish from 1820-1831 (and posthumously in 1832, though not mentioned as such). "Alexander et. al." appears at...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Sorry for sending multiple replies per day... but I believe I figured out the reference to "my daughter, Mrs. Campbell, Endeavour." Marriage records on familysearch.org include Amelia Campbell marrying Neil Campbell in 1816 if I recall correctly. So I would speculate (based on the Christening record...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

This keeps getting more interesting every day... Jamaican Christening records available on familysearch.org appear to indicate that our Campbells got baptized en masse: - Mary, Lillie, Jane, Ann, Isabella and Iver Campbell were all Christened in Hanover on 10 Dec 1803, along with their mother Elizab...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Peter, I'm so glad you contacted me. This is truly interesting, not only to me, but also to my Hay cousins in Canada who also descend from Archibald. I'm eager to spend more time perusing the Jamaican Family Search site much more carefully and methodically (I've been dealing with a burst cold water ...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

This continues to get more interesting. I just looked up the death registration for my 3rd great-grandmother, Mary Campbell Allan. She died 22 Nov 1875 at the home of her daughter, my great-great-grandmother Sarah Anne Allan Falconer, "Falcon Cottage" in Croy, Inverness-shire, Scotland (which I happ...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Do you have the will of Sir Humphr(e)y Trafford Campbell of Asknish, Scotland? I see it is available on nationalarchives.gov.uk.

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

P.S. I'd sure be interested in a transcript of the will when it is finished. Archibald was my 4th great-grandfather. I do have a picture of Sarah Anne Allan Falconer posted on my photobucket.com page, which you should be able to find easily via a Google search. Best regards, Tim

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Regarding Trafford Campbell, I found the following old newspaper advertisement on ancestry.com: St, John, New Brunswick Courier, 15 Oct 1831, p.3: INFORMATION WANTED IF MR. TRAFFORD CAMPBELL, (a Carpenter by trade,) who left Montego Bay, (Jamaica,) about the middle of July, and arrived here on the 1...

Re: ALLEN - Jamaica, Hanover

Peter, Thank you so much for this valuable information! These are surely my Scottish/Jamaican ancestors. My cousins on this side (most of whom are named Hay) will be fascinated by this information, as I am. This opens up a whole new line of research for us. I just took a quick look at jamaicanfamily...
