Biography

Awarded the compensation for 4 awards in Trinidad.

  1. Will of David Graham of [Prior Park Buildings] Lyncombe and Widcombe Bath proved 23/02/1841. The will shows his London 'dwelling house, buildings and premises with the appurtenances' at No. 15 Great Hermitage Street in St George the East: this Wapping address and his description suggests a mercantile background. He left the bulk of his estate to his wife Martha Graham after providing the income from £3000 for life to his niece Jane Louisa Graham, one of the trustees for whom was his brother, Henry Graham of Trinidad . There is no evidence to date connect him to the London merchant firm of Davidsons, Barkly (formerly Davidson & Graham). His executors were John Sutton of the London Stock Exchange and John Gilmore, a naval officer.
