Trelawny, Jamaica


Trelawny was formed from the eastern part of St. James in 1770 after the wealthy planters of the area complained that Montego Bay, the capital, was too far away for them to go to conduct business. The parish was named for Sir William Trelawny, Governor of Jamaica when the parish came into being.

The "Trelawny, Jamaica" collection contains images relating to various aspects of the parish.
