Profile & Legacies Summary
Claimant or beneficiary
Thomas Drew Beavan (q.v.) was awarded the compensation for 1/6th of the Morant estate in St Thomas-in-the-East Jamaica as trustee of Philip Browne. The 1/6th interest of Philip Browne was subject to an apparently unsuccessful counterclaim by the London bankers Price Marryat (q.v.) as judgement creditors.
- Philip Browne appears to have been resident in Jamaica at least in the 1830s. The correspondence of Henry Lord Willoughby de Broke includes a letter from Philip Browne Morant Estate dated 26/01/1834 containing 'General and naval news'. The 1839 Jamaica Almanac shows Philip Browne as a vestryman in St Thomas-in-the-East and Philip Browne RN as Harbourmaster for Port Morant. There is a stong naval and military thread running through the various awardees for St Thomas No. 507, as well as Irish linkages, but the unifying theme has not yet been established.
