Per Snyder: Map Projections - a Working Manual: At origin x=500000 ft; y=0 but radius to latitude of origin = -82000000 feet. Thus False Northing = 312234.65 ftUS. NGS confirms value of FN, which is encoded within their algorithms but not published.

For Projected Coordinate System JAD69 / Jamaica National Grid
Parameters:
Ellipsoid: Clarke 1866, a = 6378206.400 m., 1/f = 294.97870
then e = 0.08227185 and e^2 = 0.00676866
Latitude Natural Origin 18°00'00"N = 0.31415927 rad
Longitude Natural Origin 77°00'00"W = -1.34390352 rad
Scale factor at origin 1.000000

Forward calculation for:
Latitude: 17°55'55.80"N = 0.31297535 rad
Longitude: 76°56'37.26"W = -1.34292061 rad

r = 19643955.26 r0 = 19636447.86
theta = 0.00030374 t = 0.728965259
Then Easting E = 255966.58 m
Northing N = 142493.51 m
Reverse calculation for the same easting and northing first gives

t' = 0.728965259
m0 = 0.95136402
r' = 19643955.26

Note: These formulas have been transcribed from EPSG Guidance Note #7-2. Users are encouraged to use that document rather than the text which follows as reference because limitations in the transcription will be avoided.
To derive the projected Easting and Northing coordinates of a point with geographical coordinates (lat,lon) the formulas for the one standard parallel case are:
E = FE + r sin(theta)
N = FN + r0 - r cos(theta)
where
n = sin lat0
r = a F t^n k0 for r0, and r
m = cos(lat)/(1 - e^2 sin^2(lat))^0.5 for m0, lat0, and m2, lat2 where lat1 and lat2 are the latitudes of the standard parallels.
t = tan(pi/4 - lat/2)/[(1 - e sin(lat))/(1 + e sin(lat))]^(e/2) for t0 and t using lat0 and lat respectively.
F = m0/(n t1^n)
theta = n(lon - lon0)
The reverse formulas to derive the latitude and longitude of a point from its Easting and Northing values are:
lat = pi/2 - 2arctan{t'[(1 - esin(lat))/(1 + esin(lat))]^(e/2)}
lon = theta'/n +lon0
where
theta' = arctan[(E - FE)/{r0 -(N - FN)}]
r' = +/-[(E - FE)^2 + {r0 - (N - FN)}^2]^0.5 taking the sign of n
t' = (r'/(a k0 F))^(1/n)
and n, F, and rF are derived as for the forward calculation.

The latitude of the point from which the values of both the geographical coordinates on the ellipsoid and the grid coordinates on the projection are deemed to increment or decrement for computational purposes. Alternatively it may be considered as the latitude of the point which in the absence of application of false coordinates has grid coordinates of (0,0).

Since the natural origin may be at or near the centre of the projection and under normal coordinate circumstances would thus give rise to negative coordinates over parts of the mapped area, this origin is usually given false coordinates which are large enough to avoid this inconvenience. The False Easting, FE, is the value assigned to the abscissa (east or west) axis of the projection grid at the natural origin.
