Seaford Town, a former German settlement in Jamaica

Seaford Town - German Settlement in Jamaica (Jamaican History) 1990s Documentary

Remember my article on the Jamaica coalition, a colloquial term for an alliance between three German political parties related to their colours making up the Jamaican flag? Probably not. But this article is actually about a connection between Jamaica and Germany.

Seaford Town is a settlement located in the west of Jamaica. German labourers settled there in around 1835, leading it to be called “German Town”. The above documentary shows both German descendants and some modern Germans in the area and how they live.
