Dr Ashton Warner

???? - 1789


Biography

Husband of Rachel Warner nee Pare (q.v.), owner of Belvidere (formerly Hornes) in St John's Parish Antigua, which he had purchased 'of Valentine Morris Horne.' In his will dated 05/04/1789 he said: 'I do not wish Belvidere to be sold, but give it to Mrs Massett for life & after her death to my nephew Tho. Norbury Kerby.' Mrs Massett was Mary Ann Massett, a widow in Antigua: she was also left other property under Ashton Warner's will. Rachel Warner described Belvidere as 'my plantation' in her will of 1805, implying she had overturned her husband's bequests.

According to Vere Langford Oliver the sale took place before 1771, when Valentine Morris Horne removed to Grenada.
