[GUYANA] My Grandfather's Guyanese Background

I'm searching for more information about my grandfather, which has been difficult because he was born on a ship traveling between Guyana and the U.S. His father's name was Edwin Nelson Mayson from Georgetown, Guyana. The Mayson family was apparently related to people with the last names of Stuart or Stewart and Frobish or Froybish. The Stuarts or Stewarts owned a pharmacy or "apothecary" in Georgetown. Edwin Nelson's wife was named "Rose" or "Rosa." That's all the information I have, and it dates back to the late 1800s, as my grandfather was born in 1873. If any of this sounds faintly familiar to anybody, please contact me at my email address. Thanks.
