Charles Angus

1767 - 1820


Liverpool merchant and slave-trader (with four voyages as co-owner), husband of Maria Angus nee McQuistin and father of Maria Taylor (nee Angus); Jane Ronald Crawford (nee Angus) and Thomas McQuistin Angus (each of whom q.v.). He was the accused in a sensational murder trial in Liverpool in 1808.


'McQuistin Genealogy', [accessed 22/04/2015]. Note the year of death given in this source as 1829 appears to be wrong as Charles Angus was recorded as deceased in the slave register for St Faith's, 1823; Glenn Chandler, Burning poison: the murder that rocked Liverpool (Lea Valley Press, 2000).
