Blanche Lindo was born in Costa Rica in December 1912. Her grandfather, was the owner of banana and sugar-cane plantations in St Mary, Jamaica. He was of those who introduced the idea of the bonded warehouse, where goods are held pending the payment of duty. In 1916 Blanche's father, acquired J. Wray and Nephew, Jamaica's leading rum producer. He sold out his agricultural interests to the United Fruit Company in 1928.
One of her early admirers was Errol Flynn. “He was the most handsome man I had ever seen” she later recalled. He fell in love with her and described her laugh as “like the sounds of water tinkling over a waterfall”. Blanche married Middleton Joseph Blackwell and they had a son Chris Blackwell (the founder of Island Records)
. They lived in Oracabessa but they divorced when their son was twelve years old in 1949.
Blanche moved to England to be with her son at Harrow School. In 1955 she returned to Jamaica. The following year she met Ian Fleming for the first time. Andrew Lycett, the author of Ian Fleming (1996), has pointed out: "Ian found that Blanche was petite, with shapely legs, and the dramatic, dark features of a Velazquez beauty. Although strictly brought up by her mother, who remained a powerful influence, she had none of the self-importance and stodginess which Ian associated with frustrated colonial wives. Blanche managed to be both reserved and ladylike on the one hand, and lively and spontaneous on the other."
Blanche described Fleming as a fine physical specimen, "six foot two inches tall, with blue eyes and coal black hair, and so rugged and full of vitality." Blanche told Jane Clinton: “I met him when he was 48. In his early life I believe he did not behave terribly well. I knew an Ian Fleming that I don’t think a lot of people had the good fortune to know. I didn’t fawn over him and I think he liked that."Sebastian Doggart has claimed that Blackwell was "the inspiration for Dr. No's Honeychile Ryder, whom Bond first sees emerging from the waves – naked in the book, bikini-clad in the movie." As well as Honeychile Ryder it has been argued that Fleming based the character of Pussy Galore, who appeared in Goldfinger on Blackwell.
Ian was married to Ann Fleming, who at the time was having an affair with Hugh Gaitskell: “She disliked me but I can’t blame her. When I got to know Ian better I found a man in serious depression. I was able to give him a certain amount of happiness. I felt terribly sorry for him.”

Christopher Percy Gordon "Chris" Blackwell (born 22 June 1937) is a British businessman and former record producer, and the founder of Island Records, which has been called "one of Britain's great independent labels". According to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, to which Blackwell was inducted in 2001, he is the single person most responsible for turning the world on to reggae music.
Forming Island Records in Jamaica on 22 May 1959 aged 22, Blackwell was amongst the first to record the Jamaican popular music that eventually became known as ska. Returning to Britain in 1962, he sold records from the back of his car to the Jamaican community.
Backed by Stanley Borden from RKO Entertainment, Blackwell's business and reach grew substantially, and he went on to forge the careers of Bob Marley, Grace Jones and U2 amongst many other diverse high-profile acts. He has produced many seminal albums, including Marley's Catch A Fire and Uprising.
After discovering The Spencer Davis Group, featuring Steve Winwood, Blackwell focused on the rock acts that Island had signed. Island became one of the most successful independent labels of the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s with artists like Traffic, King Crimson
, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Jethro Tull, Cat Stevens
, Grace Jones, Free, John Martyn, Sly and Robbie, Sparks, Spooky Tooth, Nick Drake, Roxy Music, Robert Palmer, Melissa Etheridge, The Cranberries and U2. "The bigger labels are supermarkets", Blackwell remarked. "I like to think of Island as a very classy delicatessen." However, Chris has admitted to turning down some major names. One was Elton John: He considered the pianist too shy to become a performer.

The supermodel was still drinking 72 hours after belting out Auld Lang Syne in Jamaica.
She even persuaded her pals to go skinny dipping.
Kate welcomed in 2012 with her husband Jamie Hince, her old partner in crime Grace Jones and Island Records founder Chris Blackwell.
With that lot in tow, there’s only one way it could go, postal.
The tear-up started on New Year’s Eve with Kate leading the charge at a beach party while being entertained by a local band.
It didn’t take long for Kate to work her way up to the group, grab the mic and belt out Blondie’s Rapture — with skinny dipping following shortly after.
A source said: “Kate has more energy than ever.
“She was hell-bent on ringing in the New Year in style.
“They’ve been living it up since at an exclusive resort in a beachfront villa. Her and Grace together are like a force of nature.
“As the bells tolled, Kate snogged Jamie — then Grace. A few hours later she’d successfully convinced the gang to go skinny dipping.”Actress twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
, X-Files star David Duchovny and snapper Terry Richardson were also in the fold.
The source added: “Kate and Jamie have their own cocktail waiter at the villa so they’ve been getting stuck into those.” There’s no danger of Kate and The Kills frontman Jamie running out of booze.
Island legend Chris’s Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum, which he launched in 2008, has been on tap.
It wouldn’t harm him to keep one eye on his stash though.
That lot could seriously damage stock levels.
Goldeneye was the name given by Ian Fleming to his estate in Oracabessa, Jamaica. He purchased the land next door to Golden Clouds estate and built his house on the edge of a cliff, overlooking a private beach. The original house was a modest structure consisting of three bedrooms and a swimming pool. Fleming's coterie of friends who visited him at Goldeneye included actors, musicians and filmmakers.
Ian Fleming’s House "Goldeneye"
Fleming claimed a number of origins for the name of the estate including Carson McCullers' Reflections in a Golden Eye and Operation Goldeneye, a contingency plan Fleming himself developed during World War II in case of a Nazi invasion of Gibraltar through Spain.
Fleming created James Bond here and wrote many of his fourteen James Bond novels here. A number of the Bond movies, including Live and Let Die and Dr. No, were filmed near the estate. In 1956 British Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden and his wife Clarissa spent a month at "Goldeneye" after Eden's health collapsed in the wake of the Suez Crisis. The attendant publicity helped to boost Fleming's writing career.In 1976, 12 years after Ian Fleming's death, the property was sold to reggae musician Bob Marley. Marley sold the estate in 1977 to Island Records founder Chris Blackwell
. Eighteen years later, the estate's name would be the title of the seventeenth James Bond film, and the first to star Pierce Brosnan as 007.
Goldeneye is located in the Oracabessa Bay Fish Sanctuary, which was established in 2011 to protect Oracabessa’s marine ecosystem.  It is adjacent to James Bond Beach, home of international concerts and festivals.
