Claimant or beneficiary

Biography

Awarded part of the compensation for the Bagdale Estate and Fullerswood Pen in St Elizabeth Jamaica as trustee of William Rowe. Almost certainly the same man as the resident attorney John Griffith (ID: 15236), the awardee under several claims in St Elizabeth and Manchester.  

  1. The beneficiary William Rowe is conceivably the William Rowe West India merchant aged 39 in 1851 living at Edge Lane Liverpool with wife Margaret (born Scotland) and two children (born Liverpool) who was living at Tonbridge in 1891 and died there in 1897, leaving around £1,600.
