George Booth Barritt

1768 - 1849

Claimant or beneficiary


Son of Thomas Hercey Barritt (q.v.), who left him an annuity of £400 p.a. in his will, secured on Paradise in Vere. Thomas Hercy Barritt left his real estate [and enslaved people] in Jamaica to his daughters implying either estrangement from his son or perceived incompetence on the latter's part. Consistent with this, George Booth Barritt had been imprisoned for debt in 1806.

  1. Will of George Booth Barrit of [Moult] France [made in 1848] proved in London 26/01/1853. He left his second wife the arrears of the annuity that Reid & Irving had failed to pay him.
