Surnames: Beswick
Hello,

I am replying to the most current message in this thread. This is the first time I have posted on this forum as I just became aware of its existence.

My name is Paul Beswick. I was born in St. Andrew, Jamaica, and still live here. My father was born in the parish of St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, in a district called Breadnut Valley, near the town of Maggoty. He died in NY, USA. in 2003, at over 93. To answer the question in the post, I believe all of the Beswicks in Jamaica were originally in the St. Elizabeth area, and moved to other parts of the country and abroad in the early 1900's. I have met one or two like this both in Jamaica and overseas. In fact I met a cousin, Diana Beswick simply by chance in London in 1976 - she now lives in St. Andrew, Jamaica and I still see her often.

I understand there is a large contingent of Beswicks in Australia and New Zealand, and New South Wales. It would be interesting to know how far this family has spread. There is an interesting story of how the family got to Australia which states that in the 1700's a 16 year old Beswick was caught stealing in London and was offered the choice as was common in that era, of being hanged or shipping out to Australia to help populate the expanding British empire. The choice was a no-brainer and the rest is history!

As far as the USA is concerned, I know only of my immediate family there. My brother, one of his sons and his daughter all live in New York state. However I have been told that there are vast numbers of us of every shade, hue, and ethnicity in various states in the Union. As time passes, names no longer reflect actual history or cultures. Case in point - my grand nephew Marcel Beswick (my brother's first son's first son) looks decidely Chinese, because of course his mother is of Chinese extract (born in Jamaica)!
