Do you have any additional information? Also, what are you hoping to find out about this person?
I have a sarah elizabeth whitehead married 3 times in Victoria, Australia. On each of her certs she lists her birth as West Indies or Jamaica or Manchester. I have found an entry in the Jamaican C of E parish reg. transcripts 1664-1880 under Sarah Whitehead. It is image 114 and pge 224. The mother and father are both listed as Whitehead and there is no date given.

I believe her father is Mark Whitehead and mother Hannah Saul. Sarah was born abt 1835-7. Sarah Elizabeth Whitehead is GG Grandmother to my wife in Australai

Thanks for you assistence

I can't reproduce the search results you mention, but I have found some others, but they don't seem likely matches. Can you send me the link you have?

The actual page of the regisater (using the link above) says she was illegitimate and black, and the baptism was in Westmoreland..

This one seems to be the baptism of slaves owned by one E. Peart Esq. I recognioze the names of some of the plantations as being in the Parish of Manchester. If you look at the earlier page 219 (image 111) you will see that the list is for the year 1822. The ages of the slaves are not given.

The computerized indexes at the LDS site for the Jamaican collection(s) are not comprehensive, so there may be another Sarah not yet in the index. For the ones not yet indexed, it is possible to manually search the handwritten index books (scans available at the LDS site) and find the reference to the volume with the details. That is laborious, but if you want to do that I can show you how.
