John Inglis

???? - 1822

Claimant or beneficiary


John Inglis, merchant, senior partner in Inglis Ellice (q.v.). Father of John Bellingham Inglis (q.v.).

  1. John Inglis who died in 1822 was the senior partner in Inglis Ellice of Mark Lane. This John Inglis is not to be confused with John Inglis of East India House (whose will is PROB 11/1661).

  2. John Inglis' will (dated 28/08/1822) makes no mention of John Deacon, Charles Campbell or Alexander Gillespie (all q.v.), identified as trustees for John Inglis in the Slave Compensation Records. It is a trust will but the executors and trustees are identical, viz. Inglis two sons John Bellingham Inglis and James Inglis, and two sons-in-law. Administration was granted to Robert Ellice in July 1834.

  3. Inglis Ellice had failed in 1823, and assignees were appointed. The assignees announced the intention to appoint trustees. It is not clear whether these were the same trustees as those appearing in the Slave Compensation records as trustees for John Inglis.

  4. Among other transactions for which the assignees of Inglis Ellice subsequently sought approval was an elaborate arrangement with Rev. William John Joliffe for him to retain benefit of mortgages over property in St Lucia which had been transferred to him by Inglis Ellice.

  5. "[Death in 1818] At Walthamstow, the wife of John Inglis of Mark Lane."

  6. The Times published an advert for an auction of John Inglis's wine cellar at his residence at Mark Lane, arranged by his executors in 1822.
