Re: The Fairweathers of Belize

Hi Eileen,

Well I really don't know if our families are related. That's the question isn't it - how did the name FAIRWEATHER get to Belize? Obviously it came from Scotland or England, but who was the patriarch who carried to the Caribbean and Belize?

I visited Belize this summer and did get a great deal of information about Belizean Fairweathers. The Fairweathers are a very old and very distinguished and prominent family going all the way back to very beginnings of colonial British Honduras.

And its very difficult to tell where the white British Fairweathers end and the black Belizean Fairweathers begin.
Modern Belizean Fairweathers are obviously "mixed".
