I am researching several lines out of Jamaica. Right now, I am most interested in finding information on the names listed in the subject line.

Philip Thompson was father to my great great grandfather George Thompson. The family is from St. Elizabeth (I believe most were in Bull Savannah). I've not been able to locate a birth record for George Thompson.

Joseph Newland, a businessman and planter, was my great great grandfather married to Esther Lena McIntosh. St. Mary was their location. Their son Hon Lynden G. Newland was my great grandfather. I am trying to find more information on the Newland family.

Herbert Rerrie was my great grandfather who married Hortense Spence. I can not locate a birth or death record for Herbert. His father was Charles Alexander Rerrie, who I have found married to Emma Hart - but who is Herbert's mother? Herbert was from Hanover Hopewell.

Hortense Spence was daughter to John Emmanuel Spence and John's mother is unknown and father was Edward Shaw. Hortense was from Red Hills in Westmoreland.
