I am interested to contact anyone with these names in their family or have connections with these names. They are family names from my maternal and paternal side.

My maternal ancestors came from St. Vincent and Montserrat. The names are Samuel, Dyer from Chateaubelair, Ash from Lowmans and Straker, all from St. Vincent; and Allen from both St. Vincent and Montserrat,

My paternal ancestors came from Barbados. The names are Headley and Johnson from St.Thomas, Elliott and Holder from St.Michael.

Thanking you in advance for any information.

My maternal great grandmother maiden name was Allen. Her name was Caroline and her father's name was John Allen.

My grandmother was born in St.Vincent, and her maiden name was Ash as Caroline Allen got married to Henry Augustus Ash in St. Vincent.

I am not too sure but Caroline's father, John Allen, may have originated from Montserrat, because I heard that someone of the parents came from that island.

Samuel was my maternal grandfather mother maiden name and she came from St. Vincent. Both of my maternal grandparents came from St. Vincent but my mother was born in Trinidad.

I hope this is information is of help

My great-grandmother was Beatrice Samuel. I do not know where or when she was born. She had my grandfather in 1899 in Port-of-Spain Trinidad. Due to the ease of travel from island to island, it's possible our Samuels are connected.
