Biography

Ceded the right to claim compensation for Lloyd and Mt Sinai estates in St David Jamaica to Robert Taylor: the compensation was paid to William Burnett and Catherine Forbes as mortgagees. Probably the Joseph Delpratt who died c.1836, but conceivably the Joseph Delpratt born c. 1808 'only surviving son of the late Samuel Delpratt of Jamaica' who married Sarah Elinor Boldero-Barnard in 1832 and who died c. 1882.

  1. Will of Joseph Delpratt of Kingston Surrey [ = Jamaica?: no death of a Joseph Delpratt has been found in England for this time and place] proved 15/12/1836.

  2. A provisional genealogy pieced together from fragments suggests: Generation IA Samuel (d. 1784) and IB. William (married 1750). Generation IIA Sons of Samuel = Edward (1773-1842) and Samuel who married Agnes 1774-1850 and d. C. 1821); IIB Sons of William = William (d. 1826) and Joseph (1758-1836); Generation IIIA Son of Samuel = Joseph 1808-1884 (born Bath) and possibly IIIAA Son of Edward = Samuel (b. C. 1829).
