THE JAMES FAMILY IN JAMAICA
Richard James (son of Richard James)
Born 1655 at Port Royal, Jamaica. (The first child of English parentage born in Jamaica)
Occupation: Lt. Colonel
Spouse Ann Haughton
Children: Richard James III
Granted 400 acres of land near Cabaritta Bay in St. Elizabeth. This part of St.Elizabeth became Westmoreland in 1703. He purchased other properties in ST.Elizabeth, Westmoreland, and Hanover.

Grandfather of Rebecca Ann James, 3rd wife of the Hon. John Palmer of RoseHall in St. James. (John Palmer and the Rosehall estate would gain notoriety after publication of the “The white witch of Rosehall”
William James of Westmoreland (1671 -1720)
Racial classification: “Mustee” The offspring of a white person and a Quadroon or octoroon)
Spouse: Frances Rhodes
Son: Edward James (Eddie James?)
Edward James had a son named “ JOHN ROBERT JAMES “
It is my belief that Grandfather’s mother is a descendant of Edward James. Reasons:
When I was a little boy (about 10 years old ) I would hear Aunt May refer to “Eddie James”
This would explain why grandfather’s name is John Robert. This choice of name would have been made by Grandfather’s mother, who was unmarried
