I'm trying to find information on my great-grandparents, Mary Banfield and Edward Bradshaw from Grenada. I have some US immigration records and census data, but I can't find any information on their genealogy prior to immigrating. I would really like to know their dates of birth and any information about their parents, siblings, etc. It looks like they may have divorced in the 1930s and Edward may have moved back to Grenada, but I'm not sure. I would also like to know where their ancestors came from. I assume England, with Grenada being part of the British West Indies, but I really don't know. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

As a young child, I recall my Mom referring to a cousin of hers as "Uncle Walter" who lived in Edinborough in St. Vincent and most likely is this Walcott. If you need more information please contact the administrator of The Banfields of St. Vincent Heritage. Thanks....

Is the Banfields of St. Vincent still in existence and does anyone have the site information :?: My maternal great-grandfather is William Alan, the younger brother of Walter Evans. According to my late grandfather, he was not very forthcoming on his childhood in St. Vincent.
