DOBBINS, James - West Indies

I am searching for any records of my grandfather, James Dobbins who left Jamaica late 1800's of early 1900's for Liverpool, England. His mother was Elizabeth (Lizzie) Dobbins and his father was reputed to be a seaman named John Simmonds. They were not married.

My grandfather died in Scotland in 1947. I have records of his marriage there and my own father's birth etc. I do not know if my grandfather was actually born in Jamaica or just sailed from there to UK. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
