St. Catherine was created in 1867 when four smaller parishes were joined together, and it is named after Katherine (Catherine) Queen of Charles II. St. Catherine is the second most populous and the most rapidly growing parish in Jamaica, with large manufacturing and agriculture industries. The Office of the Registrar General is still located in Spanish Town, as is the historic Emancipation Square. The capital town, Spanish Town (once named St. Jago de la Vega) was once the capital city of Jamaica and has the finest collection of historical buildings, and the country’s archives.
