The Martha Brae River is a river of Jamaica. It is located (primarily?) in Trelawny Parish on the north coast of Jamaica, towards the western edge, about 6 miles south of Falmouth, Trelawny, Jamaica. The river features rafting. A small village west of the river is named Martha's Brae because of this nearby river. Northwest of the village of Martha's Brae is Gun Hill where John Bradshaw (judge) was reportedly re-buried by his son, James Bradshaw, to prevent desecration of his father's remains by Charles II of England.
