HERBERT WILSON and "THE HERONS"
At this time, we do not have a Ralph Wilson or a Rudolph Wilson of "Aboukir", St. Ann, on our South Manchester Wilson or St. Elizabeth Wilson family chart. The St. Elizabeth chart is pre-1814 and the Manchester chart is post-1814. (You see, Manchester was created from the parishes of Vere, St. Elizabeth and Clarendon in 1814). You may need to contact the office of the Registrar-General (Genealogical Dept, Jamaica) for assistance with your research.
Firstly, we have not finished our research on the movements of the Wilsons and Herons between Scotland, England and the Caribbean (esp. Jamaica, St. Kitts, and Barbados), therefore, I am unwilling to declare that there is NO relationship between your Wilsons and the Manchester Wilsons. Secondly, our "Herbert" Wilson, a plantation overseer, had several children by several mistresses as did his brother, Gladstone, and some of their present-day descendants live in the parishes of St. Ann, St. Mary and Portland.
Our "Herbert" Wilson, a plantation overseer (1900s), is a Jamaican descendant of Edward Wilson and his wife, Ann Wilson (1800s), formerly of Wigton plantation, S. Manchester, and later of the then newly-created town capital of Mandeville. The above-mentioned Wilsons are Heron descendants (from the 1700s marriage) of William Heron of "Wigton Pen", St. Elizabeth, to Ann Wilson of Scotland. Many of their descendants were born on "Wigton plantation", S. Manchester, Jamaica (1800s), and married Scottish husbands or wives. Some then returned to Jamaica following the marriage, only to repeat the Atlantic passage, when it was time for their "white" and "near white "coloured" children to marry. Aome stayed in Scotland or England. We have also found that several also married their second and third cousins from both sides of the Atlantic. If this history fascinates you, you may wish to read my book - "The Heron Intrigue: 1066 to present - Vols. 1-4", which is scheduled for publication before the end of 2010. There will be a lot of detail on the Wilsons in one of the volumes of this book. You may also read the website "jamaicaherons.com" by Richard Mitchell for scant information on some of the Wilsons who are Heron descendants. You may contact Gladstone L. I. Fisher (aka Tony) via "GenForum" to see if he has any info. on your Wilsons.
If you can go back two or three generations(1900-1960), we may find some names that match, if not, this would have been a wonderful research adventure for you and your family.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.
