Hon. Stedman Rawlins

???? - 1830


Biography

Probably but not certainly the son and co-heir of Stedman Rawlins II of St Kitts (q.v.). In the mid-1820s missionary accounts of St Kitts include Hon. Stedman Rawlins as a member of HM Council on St Kitts.

  1. A gravestone in Old Burying Ground, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada reads: Sacred to the memory of The Hon Stedman Rawlins, President of His Majesty's Council of the Island of St. Christopher who died May 31, 1830 in the 47th[?] year of his age.
