Petty Vaughan

1788 - 30th Jul 1854

Claimant or beneficiary


London merchant, son of Benjamin Vaughan (q.v.) and Sarah Manning, and nephew and partner of William Vaughan (q.v.) and nephew of Charles Vaughan (q.v.).  

  1. Baptised 01/10/1788 St Andrew Undershaft son of Benjamin; 1851 living at 70 Fenchurch Street, West India merchant, aged 62, born Jeffrey Square; will of Petty Vaughan merchant of Fenchurch St proved 18/10/1854; administration granted 05/04/1879 of estate of Petty Vaughan who died 30/07/1854 formerly of Fenchurch St but late of [15] St Helens Place, effects under £450.

  2. He is described as 'the slave-trader Petty Vaughan' in a 'London Sugar and Slavery' site but there is no evidence of him in the Transatlantic Slave Trade Database (nor of his uncle William, also described there as a slave-trader). The site then goes on to point to the interconnection of trades in the slave economy.
