Claimant or beneficiary


Brewer then banker in Teignmouth, Devon who counterclaimed with his partner Robert Jordan (q.v.) for the compensation for the Prospect estate in Portland Jamaica belonging to the Attlay family. Simon D. Smith shows the partners as owed £1000 and as reaching some form of settlement with the awardees of the compensation, the London mortgagees Jegon and Rutherford (q.v.).

  1. The banking firm of Langmead, Jordan and Scott in Teignmouth was dissolved in 1825 with the retirement of William Scott: William Langmead and Robert Jordan carried forward the business together. William Langmead was bankrupt in 1841 and imprisoned for debt in London, but Jordan's partnership with him appears to have been dissolved before Langmead's failure.
