Searching for Tiny Phipps
My ancestral family are the Phipps of Stredwick Hill, Glengoffe, St Catherine. They are a large family with branches in England, United States and Cuba. However, there is one mystery that still needs clearing up all these years. My grandmother told me that one of her brothers, Tiny, disappeared from home and has never returned to this day. One other brother, Percy, was found in St. Thomas and Papa returned from England in the seventies. Most of the brother and sisters died between the seventies and eighties but no word has been heard of Tiny or any offspring of his. It is quite possible that he went to a part of Jamaica, probably settled down with a woman and had children and probably those children couldn't be bothered looking up their father's relatives. Percy was found over in St. Thomas by Mass Brother. He had two children, a boy and a girl with a nurse. Neither of them ever came to Stredwick Hill. Here are the Phipps family tree. Mass Jimmy and Miss Issadora are the head of the family. Their children are as follows: Francis(Mass Brother) Maud, Vanny, Hilda, Blackie, Jay, Texy, Papa and Tiny. My grandmother, Ella, was an outside child of Jimmy Phipps. Tiny may have left Glengoffe in the late twenties or the thirties. That he never returned or any acquaintances reported seeing him is still a mystery. The End.
