BRANDON (Horatio and Charles) - Jamaica

Postby AuroraO » Tue Jan 27, 2015 7:03 pm

I have been trying to find a link to Horatio Brandon of Kingston Jamaica and my GGfather Charles Brandon born Nov. 13, 1869 in Jamaica. Horatio is listed on the marriage record of Charles Brandon and Ida Garvin as Charles's father. This is a missing link for me and I recently purchased the will of Horatio hoping to find some links there. The will was made in 1871 a year before he fell from a train and died in London. Horatio only lists one child by a natural mother and 3 sisters and a mother Rebecca. Alas no Charles. I have searched the Jamaican pages. Hopeful for any hints. One family branch says Eugenie Thompson is his mom but I have NO verification of anything. :)

Lots of info here, using mother's name... ... e%3ACarter

This should be a fairly good start for you. Take a look at all the "switches" at the lower left side and play around to see how they can help you either broaden or narrow the search.

I have a Horatio Brandon born 12 Aug 1835 in Kingston, Jamaica and died 1872 in the UK, with a wife Frances Augusta Stone.

I have them having two children, Isobel Louise Brandon, between 1860 and 1861, and Eugenia Louisa Brandon, between 1862 and 1863.

I am a descendant of his older brother, David Brandon, born 14 Jan 1815.

Let me know if I can assist further.

Good searching.

Take care,

I think that we may be related. Although my great grandfather was a Sampson, his father was Horatip Brandon.
See the Jamaican Family Search information at ... indett.htm

From that site:

"....John Charles Augustus3 Sampson (Georgiana2 Windett, ?1) was born August 09, 1858, and died September 09, 1929. He married Alice Maria Parsons January 04, 1889 in Coke Chapel (Methodist church), Kingston9, daughter of Samuel Parsons and Madeline Mead. She was born April 04, 1867 in Manchester.

Notes for John Charles Augustus Sampson:
He was the son of Georgiana Windett by Horatio Brandon, a shopkeeper in Porus, Manchester. He was adopted by his mother's husband, Clarence Abraham Sampson, and he was given his surname.

On the list of passengers sailing on the S.S. Admiral Sampson from Port Morant, Jamaica on August 28, 1907, arriving in Boston, USA, in transit for Toronto Canada, were John Charles Sampson and his wife and 7 children as follows:
John Charles Sampson, merchant, aged 49, (closest relative in Jamaica his aunt Amelia C. Windett).
His wife Alice Maria Sampson, aged 39
Lillian Sampson aged 17
Ida Maude Sampson aged 15
Catherine Sampson aged 13
John Eustice Sampson aged 12
Nellie Louise Sampson aged 8
Sidney Olivier Sampson aged 4
Frank Augustus Sampson aged 3

Their nationality was listed as British West Indies. Their last place of residence was Kingston, Jamaica. For "Race or People" they were all listed as Hebrew, except for his wife Alice Maria, who was listed as Scotch.

On the 1911 Canadian Census the family was listed as Methodist. John and his wife had been married in a Methodist church in Jamaica, and it appears that the family remained in that denomination...."
