Location of Kellits in Jamaica

Kellits is a settlement in Jamaica. It has a population of 2,658 as of 2009.[1]

It most probably takes its name from the landholding of Moses Kellet, assembly man for the parish of Clarendon in the 1750s,.[2] although records give even earlier reference to one George Kellet of Clarendon and his son Henry born in 1698.[3]
