William Libert

???? - 1784


Slave-owner on Jamaica, dying c. 1784, shown as 'William Albert' owner of Green Vale formerly Purgatory in the transcription of the list of estate owners in Trelawney in 1776. The Green Vale estate was in 1793 registered for John Hodges Libart [sic] a minor son of Jacob Libart deceased, also given as Libert. All three men were presumably related to John Libert (q.v.). William Libert and Jacob Libert were shown as lieutenants in the Trelawny militia in the 1784 Jamaica Almanac. In November 1784 William Libert of Trelawney was described as 'late' in an advertisement for recovery of three self-emancipated people. Nothing further of the family has yet been traced.
