Mumby Family Genealogy Forum
Thank you for the information Angela.
The records I have indicate that Valentine Munbee, esq was born <1700 at Herringerhall, Suffolk, England. (Some records spell the name as Mumley).He is described as one of his majesty's council in Jamaica. He married Bridget Beckford b:1705 of Tom's Hall, Jamaica. (She was a descendant of Col. Peter Beckford, Lt. Gov. & Commander-in-Chief, Jamaica). Their daughter Bellarima Munbee was also born at Herringhall, Suffolk <1726. She died in 1794. Bellamira's husband, Col. John Gore, was born <1724 in the general area of Herringhall. He died in 1794.
Could the Valentine Munby who married Elizabeth Dawkins in Clarendon, Middlesex, Jamaica in 1702 have been the father of our Valentine Munbee?
Do you have access to land records of the period? I'm trying to locate the Munbee estate on the Island. One of Bellamira's brothers owned an estate in St. Mary, Jamaica. That might be a clue.
