My name is Robert Chalwell Jr, I was born on the island of St. Thomas to Lorraine Stephens and Robert Chalwell Snr.
Recently, I have grown interested in learning more about my families history in the B.V.I, but also the history and progression of slavery in the B.V.I. I am willing to accept any information on these topics. I am presently living in San Francisco California and would love to be in contact with other family members in the states. Thank You.

Surnames: Penn

The Penns were Quakers and are related to the family of William Penn founder of Pennsylvania the connection is much clearer than Pickering of Tortola to Pickering of Salem Massachusetts.

I am interested in the same. I am a Charleswell. My father Lencito Charleswell was born in Long Look Tortola to Pedrito Charleswell. However, I am told that the Surname was originally Chalwell, and was modified to Charleswell when they intially migrated to neighboring St Thomas VI.

They have I believe three daughters; Beryl Hendricks DOB;1938 St Thomas USVI, Berenice Hendricks DOB:1940 St Thomas USVI and step daughter Dorothy Sewer DOB 1936 St Thomas USVI.

In addition I'm interested to find information about Luciara Christopher DOB; 1877 Tortola BVI.
