  1. any one have any online information about Dublin castle St. Andrews. Its rarely shown on any maps. Thanks.

  2. Have you seen the Gleaner article on driving through Dublin Castle? No details really, but he was driving east beyond Gordon Town into the mountains. Dublin Castle appears to have been a coffee estate in St. Andrew in the late 19th Century (listed as owner – Aitkin (Aitken??) and estate lawyer – John McLean). This area would have originally been part of Port Royal Parish which was absorbed into St. Andrew in 1866. The only other clue I found was this excerpt “On the estate called “Greenwich,” for instance, and likewise at Spitzbergen, and Dublin Castle (the latter in the Port Royal mountains), are some old tombs.” The lawyer, John McLean, is listed as the owner of Cold Spring estate and the lawyer for several others in the area – Clifton Mount & Silver Hill. I’d guess these were all formerly part of one very large estate/plantation (probably including Dublin Castle) which was later split up, so I would think they were all in the same vicinity. If you look at the old Esso map and follow the road east from Gordon Town, then north beyond Content Gap, you’ll find St. Peters and Silver Hill (one of the McLean estates). Must be in this area. Hope something helped!! And welcome to KeepItJiggy.com!

  3. Don’t know if that Gleaner link will work so here’s the URL

    You can go to the Esso map from my Maps page.

  4. Thanks for the effort you took to expand upon this post so thoroughly. I look forward to future posts.
    There are various sea vessels involved in shipping to jamaica. It may include box boats or container ships, bulk carriers, tankers, ferries, cable layers, dredgers and barges.

  5. I am writing some stories of my childhood in Jamaica circa 1960 and desperately need some maps of the island and Kingston in particular. If anyone can help me, please contact me at maxoverton at hotmail dot com.

    Cheers
