Robert Peddie

1800 - 1841

Claimant or beneficiary


'Of town of St John, Antigua', awarded part of the compensation for the Hope estate on Antigua as assignee of a mortgage, and almost certainly the same man as the Robert Peddie awarded the compensation for two smaller awards also on Antigua.

  1. An unsourced genealogical website shows him as born Kelso 1800, son of John Peddie (d. 1840 Ceylon), and having died 16/11/1841 in Antigua, surgeon and brother of Lt Col John Crofton Peddie and William Henry Peddie.

  2. In 1840, Dr Peddie corresponded with James Gordon on the subject of potato grain. A memorial stone in the Anglican Cathedral in St John, Antigua, is dedicated 'To The Memory of Robert Peddie, Surgeon, Native of Kelso in Roxburghshire, N. B., Who died in this island On the XVI of November, A.D. MDCCCXLI, At the age of XLI years.


T71/877 Antigua claim no. 75 (Hope estate); Antigua nos. 770 and 867.
