Biography

Claimed unsuccessfully as owner-in-fee for the compensation for the Cane Hall estate in St Vincent, the compensation for which was paid to the Baillie merchant firm of Bristol as mortgagees after Winn admitted the counterclaim. The enslaved peope were registered for William Winn by Francis Winn in 1834, implying that William Winn was an absentee, at least temporarily. Genealogical postings suggest he was connected with the US, but no such connection has yet been found and nothing further of him has been traced to date.
