I am Guyanese by birth but currently reside and work in Jamaica. As far as I am aware it is now a legend amomg the Griffith people of Guyana that 3 of their ancestors came from Barbados. A relative of mine, Hutton Griffith, formerly Director of Civil Aviation (Guyana)did some research and established the following:- 1)1 or more Griffith male(s) were brought to Guyana(British Guiana) at the turn of the 19th century as artisans to help in the conversion of wooden sugar factories to steel structures. They were moved from one part of the country to the other in pursuit of their trade.T o the extent that there are now persons of Griffith ancestry in all parts of Guyana and of all racial mixes. Further, the family has also extended itself into Nickerie, Suriname. 2)As a matter of interest, he established that the first sugar Estate they worked on was at Better Hope on the East Coast of Demarara, as aconsequence 2)There are a number of Griffiths buried in the Plaisance cemetry. 3)There is a blodd relationshipe between the Guyanes Griffiths and the Guyanese Blackmans, as seems to be the cas in Barbados, 4)There seems to be a common set of names that run through the family - Charles, Herman, and Winston 5)My relative, referred to above, seemed to have a close blood relationship with the Jones family and traced the family tiews back to some plce in Wales. 6)On a visit to South Africa in 1993, I met a Welshman named Basil Griffith. He claimed that he had visited Barbados in 1990 and having come across so many people with the same surname as his, made enquires of his relatives in Wales and wwas told that a relative of his had gone to Barbados on a siling ship and had never returned home, even though he kept up communications with them. I sincerley hope that the above will aid us in find our common genealogy.
