This is the maiden name of mother in law who was born in Kingston, Jamaica. Could anyone tell me the origin of this name as it seems to draw a blank from anyone researching it!

I am also looking into the surname Gonsalves, also from Kingston - if anyone can help with where this comes from. Been told it has Portuguese connections!

Thank you, any help appreciated.
 
May be something or nothing. But there is a Carribean island called NEVIS, and was once a sugar plantation in the 18th century.
It was owned by John Pretor Pinney, whose accounts are now held in Bristol, somewhere.

Sorry I cannot be of more help.

Hi
I have found an entry on the Ellis Island ship database

Not sure if he or she is one of yours. I could not get in as they would not recognise my email address. Their tough luck !!
