Cecilia Hill Allen

4th Jul 1808 - ????


Daughter of Hon. Isaac Allen (owner of Breadnut Valley in St Elizabeth, Jamaica) and his wife Cecilia. Baptised in St Elizabeth in 1809. Her mother died between 1817 and 1820 leaving 5 young children. Her father died c. 1821; Breadnut Valley was in the hands of receivers in 1823 and by 1829 it had been bought by Edward Smith. Cecilia inherited enslaved people from her mother and her eldest brother (Isaac junior, died by 1829). Probably deceased herself by 1832 when she was not named as an owner in the slave registers. Not found in British records from 1841.
