SOLOMON, MICHAEL:

British merchant and politician; born in England 1818; died in Jamaica May 5, 1892. He emigrated to Jamaica at the age of twelve, and eventually became the head of the firm of Bravo Brothers. He spent over sixty years of his life in the island, during the greater part of that time being actively engaged in its administration as a member of the Legislative Council, in which capacity he rendered distinguished services, and as custos of St. Anne's. He took part also in the organization of the exposition in the island, and in 1887, in recognition of his many eminent services to the colony, Queen Victoria conferred upon him the companionship of the Order of St. Michael and St. George.
