Background[edit | edit source]

The earliest two ships that brought Chinese migrant workers to Jamaica arrived in July 1854. One directly from China, another composed of onward migrants from Panama. Most of the Chinese migrants were Hakka Chinese from Fui Young, Dung Quan, and Bao On. [1]

Later in the late 19th - 20th century, more Chinese came to Jamaica, but this time not as indentured laborers.
