The Ziadie family is an upper-class family prominent in Jamaica.[1] They are the descendants of half a dozen Maronite Catholic brothers who emigrated from Lebanon.[2]

Lady Colin Campbell, previously Georgia Ziadie,[3] is descended from this family through her father, Michael Ziadie.[4] She says the Ziadies have gone from being "revered to reviled to now treasured as exotic national fruit"[5] and are a wealthy family in Jamaica.[6] The opera director Sir Peter Jonas is her cousin,[7] the son of Hilda May Jonas (née Ziadie), the second of fifteen children of Tewfik Ziadie, Michael Ziadie's brother.[citation needed]
