I recently found out about relatives in Panama. My grandfather was Ernest Theophilus Beckford who was born in Jamaica, went to school in England, and visited many Central American cities during the time of the banana trade. One of wives, went to Panama with their twin sons after he died, presumably to stay with relatives. My son met a friend at school in Florida whose great-grandfather left Jamaica for Panama also. His name was Hezekiah Beckford. I would like to hear about any information on Beckfords in Panama and Costa Rico.
