Charles Hill

No Dates

Claimant or beneficiary


Awarded with Thomas John Lloyd (given as Thomas S.L.) Baker (q.v.) the compensation for the enslaved people on the Eden estate in St James and for another smaller award in the same parish, as trustees and executors of Charles Bernard. Thomas John Lloyd Baker was a trustee and executor of Charles Bernard of Frampton Lodge (q.v.), but Charles Hill does not appear in the will.   

  1. Probably but not certainly the Charles Hill who was in partnership with George Hilhouse as merchants, ship-owners and shipbuilders in Bristol until the latter's retirement in 1844. The Bernard family had Bristol connections. If this identification is correct, then Charles Hill's trusteeship would have been inherited or assumed from a prior generation.


St James no. 31A-F; St James no. 733.

Charles Hill appears in the compensation records as one of two executors and trustees of Charles Bernard, but must have been added after the will of Charles Bernard of Frampton Lodge was proved in...
