Do you know the names of the "3 brothers"who, from the story went to Jamaica. Some Algeo's arrived in North America in the late 1700's from Ireland.Settling both in Canada and USA.They were before that from the Paisley area of Scotland,going into Ireland mid 1600's.Previous to that (c1450)one,"Jacobo Algeo" was from Italy. Archive records in Scotland show some of this. Yes...I have seen the name spelt,ALGEO,ALGOE,ALJOE.I feel that all variations derive from 1)the way the person pronounced it. 2)the way another person heard it.
