Biography

Awarded the compensation as owner-in-fee for Mount Rose estate in Grenada. 

  1. Possibly the man identified as Alexander Campbell junior of Grenada in 1802: "'Upper Mont Rose Estate' in St Patricks Grenada to be peremptorily sold, together with a cotton plantation called Herbert's Point or Lower Mont Rose, at Garraways 01/12/1802: particulars from John Campbell Sen. Glasgow, Messrs Smith and Sons solicitors Basing Hall St and Alexander Campbell junior, Grenada."

  2. Another Alexander Campbell of Grenada (q.v.) was executed with Ninian Home in Fedon's Rebellion in 1795. This Alexander Campbell is the subject of an article by Mark Quintanilla in Albion. His connection if any to Alexander Campbell of the compensation records has yet to be established.
