MCDERMOTT - Jamaica. St. Thomas

My grandfather was Sydney Esquerine McDermott, born in Saint Thomas, Jamaica in 1906 to Jane or Jainey Bailey (Cuba) and Joseph McDermott (Irish).

Sydney later moved to Kingston and married my grandmother, Christina Badwah (East Indian).

I'm looking for Joseph McDermott's family. If he was in Jamaica from Ireland/England in passing. It's my understanding Irish families have a particular naming to their first sons. If this be true, Joseph's father would be Sydney McDermott since first son's are named after the father's father.
