I was very pleased to see this photograph. The island is spelt 'Carriacou' and is in the Grenadine Islands between Grenada and St Vincent.

Hi Francis

I would be very interested to know more about John McLean and his slave plantations in Carriacou. My ancestors were slaves on his Grand Bay Estate

I am a direct descendant of George McLean, John's brother. Can anyone help me to trace George's and John's parents and /or their ancestors? Many thanks in advance.
