About The Dunn Family
Matriarch Matilda Essie Salmon-Taylor was a descendant of the Maroons, her father was a Maroon  Colonel. The Maroons were escaped slaves from West Africa(Ghana and Ivory Coast) who were mixed  with the remnants of the Arawak (Taino Indians). Some settled in the hills of Accompong Town during  Spanish and British occupancy of Jamaica. They were skillful and elusive warriors who defeated the  British army. They governed themselves as permitted by the 1739 treaty and was excluded from the  Jamaican constitution. Their most popular leaders were 'Nanny' of Nanny Town, her brothers Cudjoe and Accompong of Accompong Town.
 Most Maroons were descended from the Ashanti Tribe(Akan People) of Ghana.

Patriarch George Dunn  descended from Scotland and Ireland. It is said that three brothers  arrived Jamaica during the 1700's and became wealthy land owners, one went to St.Elizabeth, one  St.James and the other St.Ann however they were also heavy drinkers and gamblers. They lost most  of the land including the property that had the Reviere Bauxite company, The Dunn's River falls  property was said to be donated by the Dunn's of St.Ann. Patriarch George resettled in Cedar  Spring, St.Elizabeth where we still have relatives. Cedar Spring produces a large amount of  pimento aka allspice.
