Leroy Allan Martin, Sr. I was born in , and went to Wesley Elementary School. A whole bunch of O'Garro boys were there too. I have forgotten most of the names. I do remember there was a David, a William, and a Philip. You didn't mess with the O'Garro boys. There were too many of them and they were only to happy to fight if anyone did anything to any of them. Philip appeared to be the exception though. There was also an older O'Garro brother that must have gone through the school before me, because I remember him as an adult and I think he was the eldest.
Never learned his real name. He went by the name "Apache". Big guy, but more likely to break up a fight than start one. Also at Wesley school at the time was an Evelyn Buntin Bunting? She lived on Waterlane. She had the smoothest dark skin, and was always disappointed when she didn't get sent to the school dentist. I grew up in Plymouth Town Hill.

I returned to the UK in and since then have on a number of occasions returned.

My name is an adopted name from John Dowdye akka John Punkin. Her brother John Hub Meade had a rum shop there. She also had brothers Daniel and Thomas my favourite uncle who died young. My bothers are Charles Gary and George.
My sisters are Melvina who I was raised with by my dear grandmother Catherine Martin who moved to America is is now deceased. I have fond memories. MMontserrat was a great place for growing up and I have great memories. A great deal of the names mentioned rings a bell. However coming to the UK aged 11 and not returning until my father Charles Jarvis died a few years ago a lot of information is lost. In fact I would be happy if anyone have any information they can share regarding my family. My name is Noella Dowdye akka Sofie Lion!!
Born to Charlie Jarvis and Sarah Dowdye. This site should be more widely publicised. It was an accident that I found it. I grew up in Montserrat which was absolutely beautiful. Children could go to school alone freely and play and walk freely around the island without fear.
I remember walking to school from St patricks to Plymouth. I used to walk where I could along the beach and where the beach became dangerous would return to the roads and would walk back home the same way. I remember the nuns used to cook what we called weeble soup and me and my sister used to get bread and cake from the bakery. My favourite was coconut tart a d rough-up and hot french stick.
I remember the huge bridge with the sea underneath just before you enter Plymouth. I remember the lush mountain foliage with clear running spring water, where bananas and dasheen grew wild, it was like a garden of Eden with mango trees coconut trees bread fruit trees avocado trees I can go on forever naming all the vegetarian God provided for that tiny little island.
Our family was very tight and because of shortage of work and excitement on the island people started to go to neighbouring islands. America and the UK. My aunt Lucie Meade went to live in St. Croix and settle in New Jersey. My mum came to Britain married and her andhher husband sent for me and my sister years later. We stay with our grandmother , which at the time was the done thing. I am sure that there a numerous montserratians who could relate to this.
Another thing is that most of islanders are relatef in one way or another. There was a shortage of men and families were matriarchal. So all you people who have next of kin from Montserrat make sure you ask questions. The questions should be are we first cousins or cousins removed? Hi there, my name is Leah Nathaniel and my fathers family where from Montserrat but I never got to know them because my father passed away when I was a baby.

Any help would be much appreciated. Kind regards Leah My email address: First time I heard this country name. Wonderful culture and place.

My husband and I are planning to spend 3 curious months on this special island next spring. I am trying to learn anything and everything I can about the island's people and their culture.
