Michael Scott

???? - 1801


Landowner in Grenada in 1780. Brother of John Scott of Jamaica (d. 1776). Probably father of 'Countess Emma Scott' (q.v.) of Paris.

  1. An indenture made 23/07/1800 and entered 02/04/1801 shows the mortgage in 1766 of Madeys sugar estate, Levera 'tract and provision' and Belvidere (formerly St Lawrents) a coffee and sugar estate, by Michael Scott deceased and his wife Marthé Cornette Victoire De St. Cyr Scott of Wolfenbuttel in the Dutchy of Brunswick in Lower Saxony, and in 1769 of the Boulogne and Union estates, initially to Samuel Wordsworth of London. Michael Scott subsequently sold annuities to the Gore family and borrowed further, from James Bogle French, secured on the same estates.
