John Alleyne Holder

No Dates

Claimant or beneficiary


The Holder family had been present within Barbados since c. 1660. Inter-marriage with the prominent Alleyne family had 'produced ten assembly or council members, one general, and five colonels of the island militia.' But by 1834 the Holders' property on the island had been reduced to the 189 acre Lemon Arbour Estate in St. John. The Congo Road estate in St Philip was owned until 1832. Other estates, in other parishes, had been disposed of before then. 'No reference to a private or chancery sale of the Holders' estate appears in the later records.'
