I am one of the great-great granddaughters of Patrick and Sita Boatswain of Montserrat. One of Patrick and Sita's son, John Boatswain had a daughter, Sally Boatswain who married a "Ryan". They had a son named Paddy, this could be a nickname for Padrick or Patrick. I don't have any other information on Sally's line except she had a sister "Nanna" and a brother Jim and of course lots and lots of Boatswain aunts and uncles of which I have an extensive Boatswain family line.
