Biography

Counterclaimant as an infant [i.e. under the age of majority] by guardian for three enslaved people in Falmouth, Trelwaney. Almost certainly the John Gordon Brown merchant born Jamaica who was a partner in Boyd Edwards and Brown of Liverpool until 1851, who was still in Liverpool in 1861 but then appears at Lochenhead House, Lochrutton, Kircudbrightshire in 1871 and 1881. The 1901 Scotland census showsa man of the same name at the same address but gives his age as 36, possibly a mistranscription for 86.
