On the 1901 british census he states his birth place as "west indies",
On browsing around this morning ,I found a michael steed researching the same name, he states on his stored message, that matthew HATCHETT was
born 1861 St Thomas, the date ties in with mathews age in 1901.
A further mystery is that all the Hatchetts Are White, whereas I have
been given a photo of a ernie Hatchett ,who is obviuosly not, I have enclosed the photo of him .
A furthe mystery occurs wjhen my mother got married in 1947 in
broadstairs kent, where dad came from , now his father charles henry
HODGE, married a Matilda katleen HATCHETT ,a daughter of matthew
hatchett, and she was white, however when on honey moon there mom and
dad went to see some of his rellies , and the were not totaly white.
If you can help out in anyway ,or use you expertise on local resources
the area , i would be grateful.
Sending photo on next message.

And welcome to the list.
You do not give the dates of this query so it is a little difficult
to say. However there are several possibilities.
There is St Thomas the Virgin Islands
There are also two parishes called St Thomas in Jamaica. St Thomas
in the East which to day is called just St Thomas and St Thomas in
the Yale which is now a district in the parish of St Catherine.
There may be other parishes in other islands called St Thomas
Do you know if it was a parish or an island was meant by your informant? Madeleine
