Hi. My name is Patrick George Lyle. Son of Patrick Antonio Lyle of New Broughton, Cross Keys, Jamaica, W.I. and Lorenza Anicia White Bullard of Guantanamo, Cuba. My paternal granparents are Cecil Alexander Lyle of Manchester, Jamaica, W.I. and Rachel Louise Lyle (Cassells) of Manchester, Jamaica, W.I. The union of Cecil Lyle and Rachel Cassells produced Lloyd Powell, Edgar Powell, William Lyle, Genievive Lyle, Patrick Lyle, Roosevelt Lyle and Sonia Lyle. The majority of my paternal relatives were either born, raised or at some point lived in Manchester in areas such as Coca Walk, Wigton, Rose Hill, Marley Hill, Broughton, Restore, Plowden, Grove Town, Newport, Knockpatrick and Cross Keys. Members of the family have immigrated to the United Kingdom, Canada, Cayman Islands and the U.S. Family names include Lyle, Powell, Haffendon, Cassells, Rennie, Spence and Facie.
Beginning on December 28, 2007 and continuing through December 31, 2007, the first "organized" family gathering is scheduled to take place in Manchester of the Lyle-Powell family. Anyone who can trace their ancestry to Manchester, Jamaica and to any of the family names mentioned above are welcome to attend. Prior to the event, I would like to use this website as a central point for researching the genealogical history of the family and to put out new information regarding the 2007 gathering. In addition, this site can be used to update family news and information.
Should you have any information regarding family ancestry, pictures of family members (grandparents and the like) please share. Any information that you share will help to complete the picture of what is a very diversive and dynamic family.
