I have just recently found out that John James French born 1921 was originally registered/christened 'Shorte' after his mother Amelia Shorte. He changed his name to 'French' in his late teens/early 20's after his father Jeremiah French.
John had a sister called Liza (I think that's how it's spelt) who he used to dance with. He also had a brother called Duncan. There are more siblings but I am yet to find their names.
He also knew Ruth Ann Kelly (known as Rose) who had a daughter called Hyacinth and they were from Nevis.
