Biography

Charles Anthony Ferdinand Bentinck, later the fourth Count Bentinck, claimed unsuccessfully with his brother Henry John Bentinck (q.v.) for the compensation for the enslaved people on La Bonne Intention as owners. The award was made to the Liverpool merchant Daniel Willink (q.v.).

  1. Apparently in Britain in the 1830s, but died in Germany.

  2. The estate probably came to the brothers from their uncle Henry William Bentinck (1765-1820), who was governor of Demerara 1806-1812 and of Berbice 1814-1820.

  1. Seymour and Haggerty, 'Bolsover Castle' p. 16 gives details of two letters of 1835 to Lt Col C. Bentinck of New Lodge Gatton Reigate and 1 St James Place London, one of which implies Charles Bentinck was recently returned from a 'West Indian trip.'
