Photo Flashback: St Catherine – four parishes in one
ST Catherine has the unique distinction of including in its 497 square miles area, four of the early parishes of Jamaica - St. Catherine, St. Dorothy, St. John and St. Thomas-in-the-vale. With the passing of a law in 1867, the four parishes became one - St. Catherine, named after the Queen of Charles II. In the first act in which the parish is mentioned, it is actually and correctly spelt Katherine. Within the boundaries of this four-parishes-in-one, there is packed with a lot of interesting history of Jamaica.
