[JAMAICA] The Shirley Family
My name is Mekisha Hugh-Hampton and I am trying to trace my family history back as far as I can go. My maternal Grandfather's name is Winston Shirley who was born in Cuba and raised in Jamaica in Bamboo. His mother's name was Eunice Ellis Shirley (called Ms. Nicey pronounced Nice- E)and she was a steamstress in Lily field. I think she passed away during the late 1990's. Eunice's husband was Lottimon Shirley, I don't really know too much about him.
My maternal grandmother's name is Mavis Clarke Shirley and she is related to the Greeves family St. Elizabeth (I think).
If anyone can offer any advice on where to start I would appreciate it. I would love to trace it back to the slavery days.
