Hazell Family Genealogy
(as written by my mother in a scrappy notebook and interpreted by me. I include (nasty) little details that were part of oral family history that she noted in the list in square brackets.)
Two Hazell brothers came from Liverpool to Saba with their wives. Went from Saba to Bequia where they settled.
Hercules Hazell b. 1749 in Saba d. 1833
Elizabeth Simmons 1785-1848 (I’m inclined to think these are the dates of her marriage and death)
Eliza Gregg, his cousin, daughter of Mary Hazell
John Hercules (seven children in total, the rest apparently not relevant)
m. July 25 1840 Married in Bequia.
Jane Anne Arrindel [Her father had slaves and when they did something he didn’t like he stamped on their feet.]
John was drowned in Mustique 1886.
John Gregg Windsor Hazell 1848-1915 (again, one of 7 children)
Alfred Gregg Hazell (Uncle Fred) (one of 12 children, dates to follow)
4 daughters, Jean, Brenda, Peggy, Patsy- my mother’s cousins. (Not sure why my mother’s list had Fred, the youngest son, in the line of succession, but he was the one who inherited the business, having stayed in St. Vincent.)

Now, here are the family tree diagrams Cynthia and her Hutchinson cousins Basil and Ina, maybe Monica too, put together in Ottawa toward the end of the century. Cyn was clear about her own generation, but the third generation is scrappy, and their children mostly missing. As we get into the 1950s, maybe the letters will help fill in the blanks.
