Peter Ballantine

No Dates


Given simply as 'Ballantine' [as in 'Ballantine & Dick'] but identifiable as the partner of John Tailyour (1743-1815) and a correspondent with him after the latter's return to Britain c. 1792, and a partner in Ballantine Fairlie & Co. Shown as Peter Ballantine in the finding aid to the Tailyour papers and in subsequent work based on the papers. Nothing further of him has been traced under this name. Patrick Ballantine (q.v.) is known to have been a partner of James Fairlie (q.v.) in the Kilmarnock Banking Company, and might in fact be the same man.


William L. Clements Library, University of Michigan, Tailyour Family Papers 1743-2003, [accessed 28/09/2016]; Kenneth Morgan (2016) Merchant networks, the guarantee system and the British slave trade to Jamaica in the 1790s, Slavery & Abolition, 37:2, 334-352 at p. 345, gives a death-date of 04/06/1810 for Peter Ballantine, while the will of Patrick Ballantine was registered in Scotland 14/06/1810.
