Project Tags

view all


This project is to research and find out more about the Rutty and other related families originating in Jamaica, West Indies.

The early migration of the Rutty family started with Samuel Rutty's sons (some family history said three of them) coming from Trowbridge, UK, to the West Indies. Other Rutty families went to North America and the U.S.


According to Madeleine Mitchell, Rutty's came to Jamaica from London in about 1840. Settled in St Elizabeth, then Mandeville then Vere. ( Caribbean Surname Index - RUTTY, Jamaica, all )

Elder's Stories

We are losing one of our most important natural resource! What is it? Its not water, air, or minerals; it is our ELDERS! Our Oldheads need to be latched unto. So, I'm proposing a new program, where all of us ADOPT AN ELDER.
