I don't know if there is any connection. All I have is the name of my grandmother, Rosary Brathwaite/Braithwaite, who was left in Barbados by her father to get medical treatment for a leg injury. When she arrived there, she was about 5 years old and spoke no English. We think that she could have been born any between 1900-1922. We have heard that she was born in Brazil, but Surinam has always been mentioned. Her father we are told was a captain on a ship. Anyone who think that they may know of a connection please respond.
