    Hello, I don’t know if you can help me at all, I am trying to see if I have any relatives in Jamaica of my grandads family, the ‘dwyer’ family, I have very little information, other that my my grandads name was Westley Woodrow Dwyer, he was born in Kingston, his mother died when he was very young and he was brought up by a lady called Ruby. He had a younger sister called ‘lottie’ and He had an aunt who he was very close to who he referred to as ‘Aunt may’ , and next to her name in a diary of his I found werethe words ‘may pen’ I also found the names names of ‘Omar and Carmen seid’ written in there who I presume are friends.
    I understand this is very limited information but any help
    Would be gratefully received.
    Thank you

      There is another place in Jamaica call May Pen, this is in the parish of Clarendon.
      May Pen is now the capital of Clarendon; before that the capital was Chapleton [centuries ago] in Clarendon there is a district called Richmond Park; in which there is a community named Mocho.

      In Mocho there used to be white people, some names are Dyer and Francis; my mother told me before she past away that our linage is from I can’t recall the name.
