Contacts with Hall ALEXANDER, b. 1816, m. 1842, d. 1868.

Had an estate in Grenada called Mt. Reuil but he died at Montreuil Estate. He was my gg-grandfather.

Anyone working on that line? Hope to hear from you.

:shock: I am not an Alexander BUT... my oldest living relative Muriel La Motte 1913, Grenada of Margret Alexander(Grenada) is.

I went to your web site and saw the write up about the "Alexanders" in Grenada and will inform the family.

Koral (GD) Muriel will leave this evening for Trinidad and will visit Muriel. I can't wait to share this with her.

While lookokng at the Registry last weeek at the Family Center I reviewed the Marriage Registry and found MANY Alexanders.

I will share them with you and see if you can conect the dots. Give me a chance to transpose them from paper to my spreadsheets and send them... I'm really excited... :D

Aunt Muriel had two daughters prior to leaving Grenada, Fedora Grant and Norma (LaMotte?). She died of cancer in Grenada. Norma was raised by the Alexanders.

WOW... If it snows tomorrow I won't go to the center but I will concentrate on trasnposing my research data

I just phoned Koral and she will check the mail and will inform Aunt Muriel . I just sent your page as a link to her. Hopefully she will see it prior to leaving. I told her that I would email her through another cuzin' in trini to keep her posted while she is away.

My goal is to connect the dots of research to Aunt Muriel then connect you to the dots and link Aunt Mureil and her children to the website up to the year 1717.. .

I know it's a tall order, but the data is unfolding everytime I view the film.

I am researching my husband's family. Difficult to find information. My husband's father's name was Andrew Alexander and he was born in Grenada 1917 (?) At some time he moved to GUAYAGUYARE, Trinidad. He worked on his Uncle Otway's plantation, perhaps in 1945 or there abouts, as an overseer where the 2 products were coconuts and cocoa. Uncle Otway was from Scotland & he may have been born around 1870.

Andrew also grew other crops such as rice for his own benefit.

Andrew was also known as Andro, possibly, Mr. Andro. Children of Andrew are Andrew are Agnita, Russell, Demostheme & Thomas (Sonny), and their mother was Cecilia Paul.

Any information would be appreciated

Thanks :)

I have checked my records and can NOT match any of the names. Perhaps if you look at my website you might find another match. You can get me through this Index.

Most of my Alexanders came from Inverkeithny, Banff, Scotland from about 1717.

Best wishes in your research.

Mr. Outram

Thank you for the information, I did see those two websites that you mention.

When I was looking at one of the websites, I saw that "Otway" was mentioned in regards to the Montreuil Estate, I wonder if it could be the same Otway that is related to my husband's father.

I have just renewed my research of the Alexander family from Grenada after making links with the family still there which I had no idea existed.

A group of us met up in London, UK a couple of weeks ago and have started a blog about our research and findings. Take a look at

I went to your blog, but for some reason there are no words on the page.

I have been researching the Alexanders who left Grenada and went to Trinidad. Would you have any information to share?

Thank you,

Mrs Alexander

Sorry the link didn't work. Try

Much of the information I have resulted from sharing with Michael David Outram so we know much the same. But I am now in touch with relatives in Grenada so may be able to answer any questions you have on the Alexanders.

You asked about Mr Otway. He was the last manager of Montreuil Estate and left to live in Barbados sometime before 1972. Don't know anything more about him.

Thank you, that link works.
I signed up to follow the Blog.
Nice Blog.
My Otway must be a different one as the dates do not match up.

I posted a comment on your Blog regarding the slaves of the Estate and the name Alexander.
Is there any information regarding the slaves taking the surname of Alexander?
