GENTLES from Scotland to Jamaica

Postby rmniven » Sun Jul 18, 2010 9:18 pm


Trying to track down any living relatives descended from John Gentles. He is my ggg grandfather who left a wife and 6 children in Falkirk, Scotland to take off to Jamaica with his brother William. While searching for him in Jamaica it becomes rather clear that there are two main branches of the Gentles surname. One, originating with William Gentles, is centered around the Trelawny area, and in particular Hampstead Pen. The other main branch, my John Gentles I suspect, starts off in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica but moves up to and around Christiana, Manchester, Jamaica area, although some stayed in Lacovia and Malvern areas of St. Elizabeth, Jamaica.

Also researching the following families that married female members of the Gentles family including Waite, Bromfield or Broomfield, White, Cox, Bloomfield and Logan to mention a few.

So if you are named Gentles, and would like to find out about your Scottish side of you family, or share your Jamaican side with me, please get in touch.

Thanks from Montreal
