Origins Of BORDE & RAMOS

Database Languages: English French

This site mainly covers the ancestry of Jean A. B. Borde and of course the name of BORDE. Those under this name can also benefit from my research. The surname exists on my father's side and on my mother's it is RAMOS. You will find a descendancy link as well which covers my third Great Grand Father, Ougust Borde. There is also information on the Ramos heritage, but not as far back.

ARRIVAL OF THE BORDES

There are two versions of how the Bordes came to Trinidad, West Indies. Here is what I have heard:

1. The Bordes were originally from Israel and of Jewish descent. They immigrated to France and there settled in the region of Bordeaux where they decided to take this name. How they got to Trinidad from there and how it turned to BORDE I am unsure.

2. The other theory is that there were three brothers who lived in France with the name of Bordeaux. They decided upon a journey to the West Indies in the hope of establishing wealth here, but they split to various islands. One of them landed in Trinidad and upon finding a strong British presence decided to drop the "aux" and use the name of "Borde" instead. I am unsure of this story as well. I understand from a cousin in California who has records as far back as the 15th century that the Bordes did originate from France and our heritage is rich there.

ARRIVAL OF THE RAMOSES

Unfortunately, this side of the family did not keep many records. It is said that most of Pedro Ramos' heritage originated from Venezuela. Pedro's wife, Virginia Montano, seems to have roots in Spain and the Canary Islands. How their ancestors came to Trinidad is a mystery other than the possibility of searching for work.
