ROBINSON - Barbados, Belize (British Honduras)

I am seeking information on Reginald ROBINSON, my grandfather, believed to have been born about 1856 in Barbados. However, he may have been as much as 6 years younger.

Reginald Robinson left Barbados as a member of a contingent recruited for the British Honduras (now Belize) Constabulary Force. I am told that records in the Belize Archives indicate that he came to Belize in 1905 but the Belize Police Force history at ... Itemid=149 indicates that most of the Barbadian recruits came to Belize between 1891 - 1893. He retired from the force and lived in Belize until his death on May 30, 1931.

I am interested in learning more about his parents/ancestors and siblings. My mother was told that she was named Josephine after his favourite sister. If his date of birth is correct, I believe he may have left children behind in Barbados since he would have been in his forties if he migrated as late as 1905. In Belize he was a member of the Roman Catholic church but may have been a convert. I have collected information about his descendants in Belize but like to find out more about his life before his arrival there. Can you help?

My later father in law is Herbert Raymond Robinson and is likely a decendant or related to your grandfather. PM and perhaps we can share what is known and from my wife's family get some additional information on his immigration and life in Belize.

Hello. I hope you are right as this is the first reply since I posted my query four years ago. I would be very interested in hearing from your wife whatever information she has, presumably from the Barbados side. I'm not sure how to send a PM unless this post is one. Technologically challenged. :)

I'm also interested in the Robinson family in Belize. My information seems a little different from everyone else's. I have a Maria (Mar-eye-ah) Robinson in my family tree (1880's- 1930's?). Apparently they were from the Yucatan. Perhaps they came from Barbados as well. If can give me any information about the Robinson family in Belize that would be awesome. Please PM me ~ Mahalo
