St Helena Ancestors
« on: Sunday 24 February 19 09:42 GMT (UK) »
My great grandmother, Sarah Ann Samuel was born on the island of St Helena in about 1846 and she married my great grandfather there in 1863. Records show she may have been a released slave. Her mother was Susannah Samuel and a witness to the wedding was Angelina Samuel.
I'm trying to find Sarah Ann or her mothers roots. Any ideas out there?
Thanks Rod Dexter

Since all slaves were emancipated by 1834 she could not have been a freed slave. Her moiher Susanah might have been.
Southern or Southan [Hereford , Monmouthshire & Glos], Jenkins, Meredith and Morgan [Monmouthshire and Glos.], Murrill, Damary, Damry, Ray, Lawrence [all Middx. & London], Nethway from Kenn or Yatton. Also Riley and Lyons in South Africa and Riley from St. Helena.
