Thomas Gobin De Latibeaudiere (deceased)

Latibeaudiere History 1700s France to Haiti to Jamaica.

The family name is from French colonists who went by ship to towns of Jeremie & Guinaudeau, Haiti where they lived and settled properties. I believe the Latibeaudiere family later escaped civil unrest in Haiti to settle in Jamaica during the Santo Domingo (Saint Domingue) Haiti slave revolts which began in 1791. Through research I have been able to uncover the name is indeed originally from France. The name has been greatly shortened over the years due to its length. The full last name in the 1700s was actually "Gobin de Latibeaudiere" as listed in pages of a property log book I saw dated 1832 for the town of Jeremie in Haiti.

Charles Jacques Gobin de Latibeaudiere settled in Haiti from France with his family and was a French military captain in Jeremie, Haiti in 1791. My trail is cold beyond that but I believe this family or at least their children relocated to Jamaica during the slave revolts and as white aristocrats, they probably owned slaves and ended up mixing with the Jamaican inhabitants and having Jamaican children. I imagine the is where the mixing of the French and Jamaican blood began.

Title: Haitian Collection, 1714-1916
Predominant Dates: 1783-1839
Collection Identifier: MS Haiti
Extent: 2000.0 Items
Subjects: Dessalines, Jean-Jacques, 1758-1806., Haiti -- History -- Revolution, 1791-1804.
Languages: French, English

This collection dates from 1714 to 1916 (with gaps) and documents French colonial rule of Saint Domingue, the slave insurrection, the beginning of Haitian self-rule, and the development of the Republic of Haiti.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection dates from 1714 to 1916 (with gaps) and documents French colonial rule of Saint Domingue, the slave insurrection, the beginning of Haitian self-rule, and the development of the Republic.

Important figures include Jean-Jacques Dessalines, Toussaint Louverture, Henry (Henri) Christophe, Alexandre Pétion, Jean Pierre Boyer, Donatien-Marie-Joseph de Vimeur, and Julien Raimond. Among the most common topics covered are slavery and the slave trade, commercial activities, and colonial life. In addition, there are several letters that contain events that occurred during the American Revolution. Included are correspondence, financial records, and legal documents.

Collection Historical Note

From 1660 to 1804, Haiti, then known as Saint Domingue, was a French colony located on the island of Hispaniola where African slaves were used to work on the plantations that produced tobacco, indigo, cotton, and cacao. Inspired by the French Revolution, Toussaint Loverture, a freed slave, led an insurrection in 1791 that put an end to slavery in Saint Domingue. In order to maintain French control, in 1801 Napoleon Bonaparte sent an invasion force, but all attempts failed. On January 1, 1804, Jean Jacques Dessalines, leader of the rebels, declared independence from France. In 1806, after the assassination of Dessalines, the country was divided in two: a kingdom in the north led by Henri Christophe and a republic in the south ruled by Alexandre Pétion. In 1821, Jean Pierre Boyer reunified Haiti and in 1825, negotiated an agreement with France which stipulated that France would recognize Haiti as an independent nation in return for 150 million francs (later reduced to 90 million francs). A revolt led by Charles Rivière-Hérard overthrew Boyer in 1843 and a long period political and economic instability ensued that ended with the occupation of Haiti by the United States in 1915.

Salomon was born in 1815 in Les Cayes. His family was influential in the tiny black elite of the south. Prominent and educated, his family often clashed with the relatively more powerful mulatto elite of south Haiti. During the regime of Charles Rivière-Hérard, the Salomons were wanted for arrest after a heated battle with the mulattoes and exiled to Neyba. As Faustin Soulouque came into power, Salomon returned along with other powerful black leaders to serve the new government. Salomon became the minister of finance under Faustin and began to monopolize export transactions in coffee and cotton, run foreign imports through state monopolies, and impose levies on capital. As a result, smuggling and piracy exploded during Soulouque's reign. After the fall of Soulouque, Salomon was exiled to Paris and London, where he read and traveled widely. On August 18, 1879, Salomon returned to Haiti and became president with huge support from the people. His plan as president was to restart public education, fix Haiti's financial woes, restore agriculture productivity, improve the army, and to fix the public administration. Within four months, he established the National Bank, and by 1880 he resumed debt payments to France. The 1880s saw a huge amount of effort by the Salomon administration to bring modernization to Haiti. He adhered to the International Postal Union and issued its first postage stamp. In October, he granted a British cable company the right to connect Port-au-Prince and Kingston, Jamaica, and by 1887 he negotiated to link Môle Saint-Nicolas to Cuba. He restructured the medical school, imported teachers from France for the Lycées, and more. The armed forces were reorganized to 16,000 and assigned to 34 infantry regiments and 4 artillery regiments. Salomon also reorganized the ranking distribution in the Haitian army, which only included privates and generals.Within four months of Salomon’s presidency, Haitian refugees from Kingston were in contact with the elite community in Port-au-Prince in order to stage a coup. When Salomon went to tour the south, general Nicolas headed to St. Marc to plan another coup, but was met with government soldiers. In 1883, exiled Haitian rebels from Jamaica and Cuba, including Jean-Pierre Boyer-Bazelais and Desormes, reached Haitian shores to start another coup against Salomon.

While Salomon fixed some of Haiti's problems, he also drained resources to pay Haiti's debt to France. During 1881–1882, an outbreak of smallpox spread throughout the country and consumed most of the finances in those years. In April 1883, the infamous Cacos from the north rebelled against Salomon and his administration, but were crushed by government troops mixed with former piquets.

From 1884 to the end of his presidency, Salomon faced numerous rebellions from the Cacos. By May, Cacos from the south rebelled in Jérémie, and in July Jacmel rebelled. In October, a huge outburst emerged between Salomon's government forces, the exiled rebels from Cuba and Jamaica, and Cacos from different cities from the south and north. Flames engulfed government records and buildings, and mass murder was being dealt to the elite class, foreigners, and merchants. This conflict was known as the "Bloody Week". Following the rebellion, inflation grew, and a scandal called the "Affaire des Mandays" became known involving the national bank, a French director, a British chief accountant and the Haitian government. In 1886, Salomon was "re-elected" for a seven-year term because of his re-writing of the constitution. In 1887, Port-au-Prince rebelled because of lack of individual freedom and the tyrannical system of the republic. Government officials withdrew support from Salomon and by 1888 Le Cap rebelled in the north. Overwhelmed by the political challenges he faced, Salomon left Haiti and returned to Paris, where he died at number 3 Avenue Victor-Hugo on October 19, 1888.On October 9, 1889, Hyppolite was elected to a seven-year term as president of Haiti by the Constituent Assembly, which met at Gonaives.[2] Hyppolite took the oath of office on the October 17. Former president François Denys Légitime, who had fled to Jamaica, instigated a number of uprisings against Hyppolite, which Hyppolite successfully repressed.[1] To prevent future uprisings, he executed their leaders.[1] It was his policy to exclude foreigners from the island as he claimed they stirred up insurrections. Pierre Nord Alexis (2 August 1820 – 1 May 1910) was President of Haiti from 21 December 1902 to 2 December 1908. Ousted from power on 2 December 1908, Alexis went into exile in Jamaica and later relocated to New Orleans with his family, where he died on 1 May 1910. He is buried in St. Louis Cemetery #2 in New Orleans.

Immediate Family: Son of Jean-Charles Gobin De Latibeaudière

I grew in a Jamaican-Ashanti Home for nine(9) years and the Queen of that show was my Grandmother in Warsop, Trelawney and her home town was Craighead, Manchester that I visited many time. My grandfather of my mother was from Alligator's Pond in Manchester and I was born in Mona, St. Andrews. My grandmother would always say to me, "Boy, I want you to know that I am Thirteenth Generation Ashanti and she would rehearse her genealogical records right in front of my face as though she was reading a book...she was not my direct Grandmother but the only mother I knew, as my mother was in Canada and my mother's mother who is my real Grandmother was Madras Indian in Pepper, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. My Ashanti-declared grandmother was a great woman who taught me many things. However as my life evolve, I think she might have thought that I would wander away from my home life, culture and forget the many Jamaican Origins(so she re-entrenched it in my head! I never forgot!) such as slaves from Ghana....Ashanti.. Aeithiopos... Abyssinia was a kingdom that spanned a geographical area in the current state of you know that the Ashanti at once was the foremost Akan people...The Ashanti Empire was an Akan empire and kingdom in what is now modern-day Ghana from 1670 to 1957...and as though she was delinating differences she would call me and my brother Bakra Pickiney - The word Bakra means in British. (ˈbækrə ) Caribbean. noun plural -ra or -ras. a White person, raw back esp one from Britain. (of people) White, esp British. In other words she was reminding me that my group was different and of different people and is interracially bred and mixed bred. It did not matter to me, I knew I was different but not that much different, all I wanted was my real mother.

Hi all,
I am Bogues in Jamaica. I also am a descendant of de Latibeaudiere. I live here in Jamaica. I can trace my roots back pretty far. I have a substantial info on my Great Grandfather Sydney Uriah Bogues born in 1880. His father William Benjamin MacDuff-Hart-Bogues owned alot of property in Bellas Gate St. Catherine. His wife was Anna Rebecca Bogues nee de Latibeaudiere who came from up there also. I'm told they were lawyers and Bogues was into Geology (or vice versa.) Bellas Gate is where they owned a copper mine. Besides my Great Grandfather they had other sons and daughters. Two more of the sons are buried up there.

I have been up there recently, and there are quite a few de latibeaudiere buried up there also. I plan to do alot more research into this.

Glad to have met everyone.

I'm hoping that someone could help me with the name Lattibeaudiere. The only information that I have is that I could be related to a Stephen de Lattibeaudiere who was married to a woman called Louise (don't know maiden name) but she is i believe from Belgium originally but then moved to Jamaica. Luise had 3 sisters Edith, Gladys & Clarisa and maybe a brother called Alfred. With the name Lattibeaudiere being French sounding i thought my ancestors originated from France but with the new info that i have maybe Stephen de Lattibeaudiere or his father is also from Belgium. Any help would be much appreciated.
Iain Lattibeaudiere.
Hi Myriam, My Name is Iain Lattibeaudiere and iam interested in tracing my family tree and have got nowhere until seeing your message. I’m from Leeds in England and my father is called Jacinth Lattibeaudiere. His father, my grandfather is called Adolphus Lattibeaudiere. As well as my dad Jacinth is 2 brothers Carlton & Hollman (could be more) and a sister (My Aunty) i would ask my dad but he is actually on holiday in Jamaica in St Thomas,Yallohas bay.
I would love to receive a reply to see if you have got mine but the area that you said St. Elizabeth might ring a phew bells with my father as he does not remember his father's father ie my great grand father.
I'm hoping that the name De Lattibeaudiere is from my ancestors so your reply would be greatly appreciated.
For now though the only other information i could give you now is i think Adolphus moved to England from Jamaica around either the late 1950's or early 1960's.
I hope this helps and i await your reply.
I also have another email address which you might want to use which is
Hope to hear from you soon,
Hi Iain! Just wanted to say, consider searching the La Touche line as you research your family tree. I have been told that La Touche and Lattibeaudiere come from the same line-- that one name was a corruption of the other. My family is from St. Mary, Jamaica.
Hi Iain, I don't know if this will be of any help to you, but this is all I know of the Lattibeaudiere's.
The ones that I knew, lived on Dumbarton Ave/Rd in Kingston Jamaica. They had a little school in their converted garrage, when I attended there in 1953-1954 there were just a handful of children. They don't think they had any children of their own (or they were grow up). A few times they took us to Special occasions at their church Holy Cross Catholic at Half-Way Tree Road.
When I left the school I lost contact with them....I will never forget them as Mr Lattibeaudiere would always send us girls outside to play when it was time to do math, he said "girls do not need to learn math" LOL.
Good luck with your search

Hope to hear from you soon, Anna

Hi Karen, my name is Iain Lattibeaudiere, I have read your post regarding the latti's, it was good to read I found a bit of info from the Gleaner newspaper and it seems that in 1791 in Haiti which was French-owned and a Lattibeaudiere from there and i believe to be a free slave, had taken part in a revolution joined the French army in a war against the British and to cut a long story short escaped to Jamaica. Maybe he is the start of all the lattis in Jamaica.

Hello my name is Jephunneh Lattiboudeaire. I'm 15 years old and according to what I've been told by my grandparents and aunts and uncles we are French and even though there are variations in the spelling we're all related. But I don't have the "de" in front of my name.
c ya

I have recently started a similar search. I was born in Jamaica, my father is Albert Latibeaudiere and my grandfather was Edward Nathaniel Latibeaudiere. I have been told that my great-grandfather (or great great grandfather was from France and that our name started out being "de Lattibeaudiere". I also has an uncle named Caleb (or Kaleb) Latibeaudiere. Any leads you can offer would be most appreciated. Good luck.

Hi Charles, I saw that Myriam has been in touch with you I was in contact with her last year or the year before then lost contact. At the moment i do not get to go on a computer as much as i used to as it is my father's.Once i have sorted out a computer for myself I will relay all the email names I have received concerning our family name.I have been told the same info as you have and we also have something in common which I will get back to. I have a brother called Robert and my father is called Jacinth Lattibeaudiere, my mother Edna-May Lattibeaudiere. My Grandfather was called Adolphus and my Great grandfather was called Lewis Lattibeaudiere. I think he used 'De' before his surname. My Grandfather is dead now and it was his wife, my grandmother who told me who his father was ie Lewis, but does not know his date of birth.I'm not sure of my grandfathers D.O.B but my fathers is 19/07/45 and mine is 10/06/67. I hope you get back in touch with me I'm sorry it has taken awhile for a reply but once i've sorted out my own PC I would be able to communicate with a lot more people as well as yourself. Before I go my father was born in Kingston, Jamaica and I was born in Bristol, England but now live in Leeds. I hope I have helped in anyway and hope to get back to you as soon as possible, Good Luck in your search and say Hi to Myriam for me, she was the first to reply to my message. You can reply to me on Good luck cousin.

Dear Fellow Lattibeaudieres
i have learnt that four brothers came to Jamaica who were French and they were all Lattibeaudieres they splitted up and went four directions of the island learnt all of this from my grandfather who also said that all Lattibeaudieres in Jamaica are related

Hi there Guys!
I know a few Lattibeaudieres, however there are no "De" attached to their names and in fact I slightly related to some of them on my Mother's side...There are 2 set of families I know of, one is very much more "White European" appearance and are residing in upper St Andrews, upper Kingston & St. Andrews area of Jamaica..., we were neighbors and close family friends in the 70's. They are very good decent, generous,respectable, Catholic family; have very good childhood memories of them. I would perhaps suggest French or Belgium background...really nice folks!
The other is darker but clearly mixed raced featured, which happens to be the ones connected with my mother (grandparent's side) and they are from St. Mary region.
I personally know addresses for both families from the past and although some have since dearly departed, many had migrated over the years to the USA and UK . My Mom would know much more as she has attended funerals over the years. By the way, I now live in the UK but still have some Jamaican links, should be able to obtain some contact details if ness!
Kind Regards!

Hi there i am also looking for some Lattibeaudieres my dad’s name i have been told is Errol George Latibeaudiere his mother is called Miss. Harper or Miss Fanny and lives in st Mary I can be contacted at 18764348303 or thanks.

Hi Myriam:
I am Karen Lattibeaudiere and was born and raise in St. Andrew, Jamaica. I did not grow with my father, but now I am older and I know my father. Because of him, I have come to know a little bit of his Lattibeaudiere roots.(We now live in the United States). He was born in Linsta (not sure if that's the right spelling),a town on the border of St. Andrew and St. Mary in Jamaica. In this town, there are many Lattibeaudiere's. It's incredible. I got to experience it when his aunt who raised him died and I went up there for her funeral. I met many Lattibeaudieres and once I told them my father's name (Stanford), they claimed I was related to all of them.

I have heard that the name has been corrupted. You have people in Jamaica with the surname De Lattibeaudiere, Lattibeaudiere, Latibeaudiere, Lattiboudeair, Lattiboudeaire and Latiboudeaire. This is comically true for my family as I have five brothers and a sister and there are three different spelling of our surname in the family. Hence, when we are filling out formal documents we sometime have to put "otherwise spelt....". That at times just makes me smile.

From what I have gathered there are pockets of Lattibeaudiere's throughout Jamaica. There are some in Clarendon and some in St. Elizabeth along with the ones in Linsta (border of St. Andrew/St. Mary). The most prominent Lattibeaudiere in Jamaica that I have known is Derrick Lattibeaudiere who was Governor of the Bank of Jamaica for 13 years until late last year (2009). His name appeared on all Jamaican paper currency until then.

I also learned that the last Maroon Chief in the St. Andrew/St. Mary area was a Lattibeaudiere and that he was my great great grandfather.

Now how they came to Jamaica, I have never gotten to the bottom of that. I have heard, but cannot prove that they came to Jamaica from France. They were aristocrats who fled the French Revolution (around the time when they were be-heading wealthy French aristocrats in Paris)...heard they paid a large sum of money to board the next ship leaving Paris and it just happened to be a ship coming to Jamaica to pick up rum and sugar. Once they came here, they bought alot of land in Upper St. Andrew into St. Mary where they apparently must have own plantations. It was said that somewhere along the line sons of the Lattibeaudiere's had children with Maroon women and that started the mix of Lattibeaudiere's in Jamaica.

Now all of that is here say and again as I have said, I have not proven it to be true or a false. Maybe someone will see this and find out the real "Monty".

I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that just like the pockets of Lattibeaudiere's in Jamaica; there are pockets of Lattibeaudiere's in England; in Leeds, Manchester and other places. Now, what would be interesting to me about these pockets would be to find out if these pockets were formed from Lattibeaudiere's migrating from Jamaica to England? or did they come from elsewhere? and, if they came from elsewhere-where?

Has anyone heard of this French connection regarding the Lattibeaudiere's? I would definitely like to find out my ancestral tree.

Hope this somehow helps.
