Who Was Gilberto Eastmond’s Barbados Grandfather?

… Gilberto Eastmond


Colombian Interested In The Birthplace of his Bajan Grandfather

Once in a while we receive requests to assist folks looking for their Barbados family roots and we’re happy to help when we can.

Gilberto Eastmond from Colombia says his grandfather was Bajan. He hasn’t told us his grandfather’s name or if he knows it, but we are a small nation and perhaps someone can assist him. Or perhaps he’ll see this article and provide more information.

Barbados is a small island, and with the internet the world has become very small too.

    I’m very familiar to a few Eastmond families, some who migrated to Panama and other South American countries. If you can send more imformation, I would try to assist.

    I was told that my grandfather was from Barbados, his name was Reginald John Eastmond. If anyone has any information about my grandfather and other family in Barbados please let me know

  5. Hi, Gilberto Eastmond is my cousin living in Colombia, and here is our grandfather info, George Eastmond married to Clarice Brown Eastmond, moved from Barbados to Panama when the canal was been built. My grandfather worked at the canal for few years then moved down to Buenaventura, Colombia around 1927. My mom Gwendoline told me about grandpa’s brother John Eastmond that moved to usa. Not sure if that is Reginald, also sister name Lori living in N.Y. that was my grandpa’s only contac with his family. We will love to hear from anyone that might be related to us. I did a layover in Panama not long ago & nostalgia hit me hard. I want to go back so bad, I will love to trace my family.

    My fathers name was Albert Montague Eastmond and his brother was Lynchfield Eastmond. My father emigrated to Bermuda and his brother emigrated to Cuba. His mothers name was Ada and she emigrated to the united states. I do not know the dates but my father was born June 19th 1900. I believe that his brother was younger.

    Most Eastmonds originated from Barbados, as did my father. However, he had a brother who emigrated to Cuba and I know he (his brother) had children. Would like to contact my Cuban cousins. Their father’s name would have been Lynchfield Eastmond. I do not remember their mother’s name. My father, Albert Montague Eastmond migrated to Bermuda where her married our mother (also Barbadian, Viola Ross Eastmond). There are four of us first generation Bermudian Eastmonds:
    1: Velda Dorine (Eastmond) Smith (eldest and only girl)
    2: Lynchfield Montague Eastmond
    3: Albert Livingston Eastmond
    4: Alphonso MacDonald Eastmond
    Would appreciate any information regarding the Cuban Eastmonds.
