Biography

Son of Hon. John Salmon (q.v.) and himself later President of HM's Legislative Council for Jamaica. He appears to have succeeded his father as attorney of numerous estates in the 1820s. Higman shows him as the attorney for 22 properties (eleven pens, seven plantations and four estates) in 1832.

Gravestone in Paynestown, St Elizabeth, "Sacred to the memory of the Honorable John Salmon who died at Kepp on the 4th February 1879 aged 81."
