Notes for Hyacinth Jocelyn Levy: Hyacinth was known as Ethlyn. Ethlyn's husband William travelled with his sister Lurline to the USA on 10th February 1923 to find work. He left Ethylin, and baby son Clavell, in Jamaica initially. William and Lurline sailed aboard a ship called Tivives, which arrived in New York, on 15th February 1923. The record states that his planned destination was Bridgeport, Connecticut. They listed their next of kin as, William J Weller, of Black River. Ethylin sailed from Port Antonio, in Jamaica, aboard a ship called the Baracoa, to join them in 1924, arriving in New York on the 23rd June.
I don't know if they ever reached Connecticut, but the US 1930's census tells us that William, Ethylin, and three of their sons are all living in Dwelling 62, West 103 Street, Manhattan, New York. The sons were Lloyd, Halford, and Milton. William was working as a Doorman for a house of apartments. I have been unable to find records of birth for William and Ethylin's other children, although I am told that there were six children altogether. William Bancroft Weller and Hyacinth Jocelyn Levy had the following children:
