Description
Photograph of a small wooden settlers house in Jamaica. The house is a small single story wooden construction with a tiled roof. There is a small door and two windows to the front of the house. The house is built on a small plot of land and there are palms and hills in the background.
This belongs to a series of Church of Scotland Foreign Missions Committee lantern slides relating to Jamaica. In 1800 the Scottish Missionary Society sent three missionaries to Jamaica. Two died of yellow fever within weeks of arrival but the third became a pioneer missionary. In 1824 a second venture travelled to Jamaica by invitation of local planters to instruct their slaves. Scottish missionaries worked at Montego Bay in the 19th century and in 1836 the first presbytery of the Jamaican Church was constituted here.
