Researching Benjamin HERRING b New York c1690, married Wendelina Van Gorcum in Curacao 1734. She was from Surinam and of Dutch descent. Their son John Fred HERRING b Curacao 1742. Benjamin possibly a merchant / ship owner / shipwright of Dutch (?) descent. I understand the HERRING name (English family?) was known in Jamaica around that time. Was there a connection? Appreciate any information or guidance
