Germans in St. Elizabeth Jamaica?

Hello my sisters, brother, aunts, uncles and friends!

As you can see I am a Ebanks, by way of my father who is from St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. Unfortunately, however, my grandparents died before I was born and my father hardly spoke of them, so I know very little about my heritage. Rumour has it that my great grandmother was either full Portugese or half Portugese, which I'm assuming was a result of the slave trade. I have also been told, supposedly, somehow and someway the Ebanks' and Elliot's are somehow related/connected through history.

The other day I was in a store speaking to a Jamaican man and he told me I looked German, "Ow im tink dat, mi na nuh, 'cos me nuh me is a black woman fi true!"
But, anyway, according to 'im, Germans were slave-trading in Jamaica, they became so hungry for food that they shacked up with young Jamaican women for food and shelter. De white man can lie like a rug, eh?!? Yu an me nuh, West-Indian women ave de best baddy in de worl', tight like a firm mango - chuh!!! An who can cook like a West-Indian woman?? Him see de Jamaican woman baddy and taste she food,'im even lickin' de pat dry, an 'im nuh want to go back to Frau Heinnen and eat she bland food an touch she white flabby baddy again! Trute, fuh real - heh, heh, heh!!

BUT on a more serious note, I'm always a little sceptical about believing anything on only one person's word, without substantial evidence. SO, does anyone know how much of what he said was true? If so, where can I obtain reliable and credible facts about the history of Jamaica and the Ebanks family tree?

Thanks in advance,

Jane
