Claim Details

Claim Notes

Parliamentary Papers p. 306.

The award was split: £2900 went to Shedden; £2686 9s 4d went to Anderson.

T71/873: claim by John Anderson, as owner-in-fee. Counterclaim from George Shedden, as judgement creditor from February 1827 for £1700 with interest to 1st May 1832. John Anderson admitted the counterclaim to £2900.

Jamaica Almanac (1828): Flower Hill estate registered to John Anderson, with 261 enslaved persons.

Joseph Sturge and Thomas Harvey, The West Indies in 1837 (London, Hamilton, Adams, & Co., 1838) p. liii: no ownership information is given. Gives a very pejorative account of the estate: no salt-fish and no mountain ground.

John Anderson was an absentee - see St James claim no. 29 for his Southampton address (Hampshire).
