I am looking for any Yeoward records in the Caribbean. In particular to Ada Lzuino Yeoward born c. 1893 in Kingston.

Unfortunately the shipping list reference for 1917 was illegible!

Your ancestors are almost certainly Yearwood's. Illiteracy was commonplace many years ago and names were often spelt out wrongly as they sounded. The Yearwood's were prolific in Barbados from the 17th Century. Started out as small time planters in St Lucy and spread throughout the island and into North and South America.
