Weatherhead-Blades Barbados

Hi. I am looking for any information (or relatives) concerning the Barbados Weatherheads. Weatherhead was my Great great grandmothers maiden name. (her married name was Blades) She had several children, one of whom was named Donavan. Donovan Blades immigrated to the USA in the early 1900's with his wife and children (one of those children was named Brandon, my grandfather.)
Also, Donavan had a sister named Beryl who married Francis Holder. I don't know much about him other than he died in the 60's and worked in the Barbados parliament.i dont think any of their children had children. but i am unsure. beryl died in the late 1980's.
We also have family on the island with the last name of Dear, but I do not know their connection.
thanks for any info!!

Cara Blades
