Boatswain family - Montserrat and the British West Indies

Surnames: Boatswain, West, Boawtsain, Boatswin, Botswin, Bosun, Boysen
Calling all BOATSWAINs!! My BOATSWAIN ancestors have been traced to Montserrat, BWI. Many former Montserratians now live in the US, UK or Canada. Many others are on the other caribbean islands.
It is a fairly uncommon name, claimed by only a select few of us. Still, I believed that we deserved our own board. Please feel free to use it to reach out to the BOATSWAIN descendents scattered around the globe.
Following my own ancestral journey, if there are any WEST descendents whose family line originated on or travelled through Montserrat, please contact me. The WEST side of my family history has been very elusive.

2011...I am expanding the surnames involved in my search. These names sound very similar to mine and exist all around the world. There may even be more variant spellings.
