According to the sketchy information I have (no sources, sorry) John
Hercules was the grandson of a Hercules Hazel, born 1749 (where?) died
1833 in St. Vincent.
Hercules Sr's wife was apparently an Elizabeth Simmons, and their son
Hercules Jr. (born 1785 St. Vincent died-1848 St. Vincent) married an
Elizabeth Gregg and were the parents of John Hercules, born 20 Mar 1817
(Windsor Estate?) St. Vincent, died 22 Nov 1886 Mustique.
I have no clue as to where they might have originated. Perhaps Cheryl
Hazell may know more.

I am a Hazell living in the UK who had family living in Wiltshire, Monmouth and possible Gloucestershire in the early 1800s but I have not been able to go any further back than 1815. I gather than a Heazle went to the West Indies in about1807 but rumour had it that he died of Yellow fever but how long after 1807 I do not know
