Biography

Awarded with Archibald Paull the compensation for the enslaved people on Mt Pleasant, New Castle and Kades Bay on Nevis, all as trustees for the creditors of the bankrupt London merchants John Plummer and William Wilson of Fenchurch Street, who had been declared bankrupt in late 1830 or early 1831.

To date nothing more has been traced of George Edwards, conceivably a London attorney.
