Biography

Will of Aretas Akers [formerly of St Christopher, for some time of Lille in Flanders but now lodging at the Hotel D'Angleterre] of Brussels Brabant proved 26/05/1785. Recognising it might take some time to settle his affairs in the West Indies he placed all his property in trust, to pay annuities of £100 p.a. to his sons, to settle £4200 he was owed by Robert Douglas and Thomas and Philip Wilson of Tobago on his daughter Isabella, to settle £2000 and £100 p.a. owed by Robert Douglas on his youngest son Robert Akers, and to divide his residual estate into 6 parts, two of which were to go to oldest son and 1/6th to each of his other four sons. Administration of this will was granted in 1828 to Edmund Fleming Aretas' widow Catherine, who had survived all her brothers-in-law.
