DOBBINS - Jamaica

PostPosted: Mon Aug 27, 2012 12:33 pm

I am searching for the birthplace of my grandfather, James Dobbins. He left Jamaica late 1800s or early 1900s for Liverpool , England. His mother was Elizabeth Dobbins and his father is reputed to be a seaman named John Simonds. James' parents were not married.

I have found no record of his birth in Jamaica, so maybe he was from another island. He died in Scotland in 1947 and I have records of his marriage etc and my father's birth in Scotland. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
