How far back can u trace your WILLIAMS surname in (Jamaica)? The British West Indies back then.Who was the first Planter in Jamaica with the name WILLIAMS? Who ws the first slaves given the name Williams? was this a slave trader only name or Planters too? were there any Planters who married a slave or had children with slaves who inhereted the WILLIAMS name?
many Williams have unanswered questions. many cannot find records of their Grandparents or great grandparents. are u a Williams with ties to the West Indies. Can we start a conversation! can we get the ball rolling please.
