Biography

London fishmonger, counterclaimed apparently unsuccessfully on the Hermitage estate in Grenada as grantee of an annuity of £185 18s secured by assignment of legacy bequeathed by will of James Baillie: the Register of Claims identifies him as Rowland Ryley, 3 Orange Street, Red Lion Square. To date the origin of the assignment of the legacy to him has not been traced: there is no obvious family connection and it might have been a private credit arrangement.

  1. In the 1841 census Rowland Ryley fishmonger aged 58 is shown at Orange Street. He died aged 82 in May 1865.
