Joseph Delpratt

???? - 1836


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. Almost certainly the Joseph Delpratt who died c.1836, (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 in 1884, although the ownership of Joseph Delpratt appears continuous from 1815 onwards, precluding the younger man).

  1. Will of Joseph Delpratt of Kingston Surrey [Jamaica] [made in 1828] proved 15/12/1836. Under the will he transmitted £10,000 that he had been left by his brother William Delpratt to the children of his cousins Edward and Samuel Delpratt (the latter deceased). [William Delpratt had left him the income from £30,000 (i.e. £1000 p.a.) in trust, with the right to dispose of £10,000 principal of the £30,000].

  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; in fact d. 1838) 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).
