JONES - Barbados

Post by cshepherd » Wed Feb 21, 2018 7:39 pm

Hello:

I am looking for some family members with the last name Jones in Barbados. In particular Barbara Jones and Paula Jones. Paula may have married and changed her last name.
But she would have been living near Lukes Avenue in St. Michael. If you have any knowledge of this surname or a connection I would love to hear from you.

Caroline

Jones is as common in Barbados as it is in the rest of the English speaking world. Do you have two or three first names to go with the surname?

My grandfather, Reginald Percy Jones, lived in Belmont Road, St. Michael, Barbados, when he married in 1907. Grandad's parents 'lived by the sea' (not sure where) and had about eleven children, so they could possibly be cousins of my mother whose name was Rosa (changed to Rosalind). Do you know who their parents were? I am keen to discover anything about my great grandfather.

Thank you for your reply.

Unfortunately I only know the maternal side of the Jones' in my family. Paula Jones' mother is Barbara Jones. Barbara's mother is Elise Jones (nee) Shepherd. Elise Jones' mother is Mary Shepherd. Elise had a sister named Alma Ismay Jemmott (nee) Shepherd 1910 - 1989. They lived together for several years in St. Michael.

I am trying to find out the paternal side of my family.

Paula Jones is living in Barbados and I am trying to find contact information for her.

Do any of these names look familiar to you? Maybe one of your Jones' married Barbara?

Unfortunately, none of these names ring a bell. But I have been in contact with someone who does research on Barbadian families, who could probably help you to make contact. But you will have to give here more information that just a name. For instance, date of birth, middle name, approximate whereabouts....

Oh dang ! lol...is it possible to get the name of the historian that you are in contact with? Do you know if this person is in Barbados? I will be there next week. Maybe I could make an appointment while I am there.

Thanks,

Carole
