Meghoo family from India

Meghoo family from India

Surnames: Meghoo
My grandfather Meghoo came from India to Guyana about 1900. Then moved to Jamaica about 1918/1920. Name was Meghoo, we think they lived in the Berbice area and he had 5 children between about 1900 and 1915 - David (my father), his twin sister Amy, Virginia, Percival and Stanford.
Is anyone else researching this name ?

My grandfather was Percival Meghoo. I had never met him as he passed away long before I was born. The only grandfather
surrogate I had was Uncle David Meghoo (his brother)

Hello, 4dawsons1, good to hear from you
My name is David Alden and my wife is Rubie (born Meghoo). Her father was David Meghoo and mother was Hannah (born Mangaroo). Rubie has a number of brothers and sisters including a twin sister in New York - Vi . We live in South Florida - where are you ?
I have that Percival died aged 45, probably around 1950. David, who you refer to as your surrogate grandfather, died in 1964 at Waterloo Road in Kingston. Besides David and Percival there was also Amy (David's twin), Virginia (who married a William Reid) and Stanford. All we think were born in Guyana and came to Jamaica around 1920.
We have tried to research the Meghoo family with little success. We have 9 children for Percival, one we think would be your parent but Rubie has lost touch with all those 9 (except Lucille, called Mimim, who lives in Toronto). They are her 1st cousins
Do all this sound familiar ? Looking forward to hearing from you. Please respond to us at djalden@bellsouth.net
Best regards
David and Rubie Alden

I know its been a while since this post, but I am just finding it in my research for meghoo. I am a meghoo, daughter of Harry Meghoo, his generation is the 1st born outside India. His siblings included Olive, Daffodil, Larry and Marshall. I think that was it. Any info or leads to speicific Indian origin/region would be appreciated.

Hi - good to hear from you. My name is David Alden and my wife of 41 years is Rubie (nee Meghoo), twin sister of Vie, who lives in New York. We live in Florida.
Rubie's parents were Hannah (nee Mangaroo, born in Grange Hill, Westmoreland) and David Meghoo (born in Guyana) and all the grandparents (your great grandparents) came to Jamaica and Guyana from India, I think around 1900.
I believe Harry's father was Percival, a brother (or 1/2 brother) of David, so Harry and Rubie are 1st cousins and you are her 1st cousin, once removed.
I have tried to research the Meghoos and Mangaroos but it's a brickwall when it comes to Guyana and India.
Lets talk further on our private e-mails - mine is djalden@bellsouth.net
Looking forward to hearing from you
David and Rubie

I am the daughter of harry and winifred meghoo (harry's first wife). Harry's brothers and sisters include the names you have listed, there are other brothers and sister too. Lucille, Ackton, Sissy (i can remember her given name)and Christine. As far as I know they were all born in Spanishtown. His mother, Martha, was born Chabia (sp?)in Cashmere India. I bleiver that Percy might have been born in Guyana. Aunte Lucille lives in Toronto Ca. and has a total of 8 children. Uncle Ackton has passed on her has children no idea how many.
