Biography

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:

  1. CLAVELL LESLIE BANCROFT WELLER was born on 23 Jun 1922 in Parish of St. Andrew, Jamaica. He married RUBY HOPE TAPPER. She was born on 03 Nov 1921 in Jamaica.
  2. LLOYD WELLER was born about 1926 in New York, USA. Notes for Lloyd Weller: Lloyd is shown in the USA 1930 census living with his parents and siblings at dwelling 62, West 103 Street, Manhatton, New York. He returned with his family to Jamaica in the early 1930's. He was known as Billy.
  3. HALFORD WELLER was born about 1928 in New York, USA. Notes for Halford Weller: Halford is shown in the USA 1930 census living with his parents and siblings at dwelling 62, West 103 Street, Manhatton, New York. He returned with his family to Jamaica in the early 1930's.
  4. MILTON WELLER was born about 1929 in USA. Notes for Milton Weller: Milton is shown in the USA 1930 census living with his parents and siblings at dwelling 62, West 103 Street, Manhatton, New York. He returned with his family to Jamaica in the early 1930's.
  5. DELANO WELLER was born in USA. Notes for Delano Weller: I have been unable to locate any records for Delano. Family tell me that he was born in the USA, probably between 1922 and 1935. He returned to Jamaica with his family in the early 1930's.
  6. JEAN WELLER was born between 1922-1935 in USA. Notes for Jean Weller: I have been unable to locate any records for Jean. Family tell me that she was born in the USA, probably between 1922 and 1935, and that she died aged 6 years old.
