BADWAH,BADWA,BODWAH,BODWA (E. Indian) - Jamaica, Manchester

Postby Amber » Fri Mar 03, 2017 4:45 am

My Badwah ancestors resided in Manchester, Jamaica in the 1800s and early-mid 1900s. The name has been spelled as: Badwah, Badwa, Bodwah, Bodwa

I can't find out when they arrived in Jamaica, but I do have some basic information. I'd love some help determining where in India they came from and more details on their story.

Alexander Badwah was born in Somerset, Manchester, Jamaica 1822. He passed away in Lacovia, Saint Elizabeth, Jamaica in 1927.
He married Jane Mandench and they had four children:
1) Robert Badwah 1868-1938
2) Walter Badwah 1886-1932
3) Bertia Ann Badwah 1890-?
4) Rebertha Badwah 1891-1903

Walter James Badwah is my great-great grandfather. He married Mary Badgnauth (sp?) in 1912 in Saint Catherine, Jamaica and had twelve children together.
1) Louise Amanda Badwah 1914-1920
2) Edward Connelly Badwah 1915-?
3) Lydia Badwah 1916-?
4) Altamont Badwah 1918-?
5) Christine Josephine Badwah 1919-1995
6) Noel Badwah 1921-?
7) Rosalie Badwah 1923-?
8] Joseph Ira Badwah 1925-1974
9) Mailsada Badwah 1927-?
10) Linford Badwah 1929-1929
11) Leonard Badwah 1930-?
12) Myrtle Badwah ?-?

My father is a Badwah. His fathers name was Robert Badwah. He passed away in the 70s.

In my search I believe his fathers name was Richard. Richard's father name was Robert as well. And his father's name was Alexander.

I've heard the names you mentioned from another person that said her mom had many siblings.

In the past I was not able to go back that far with names until we discovered their birth or death records.

Hi cousin,

Thank you for responding. My great grandfather, Walter, was Robert's brother. His daughter Christine was my grandmother.

I'd love to collaborate with you on the findings. I've yet to get many records from that side. Please let me know when you see this message and I'll message you my email.

I look forward to getting to know you!
