Biography

London merchant, awarded the compensation for Stanhope (Clarendon), Mt Charles (Port Royal), Spring Vale Pen (St James) and Green Park (Trelawney) all in Jamaica. Son of Jonathan Harrison (q.v.) and a partner in Litt and Harrisons from 1826.

  1. In 1831, William Peatt Litt and his partners John Joseph Harrison and William Harrison, all of Lime Street, were declared bankrupt; Nevile Reid, James Thomson of Billiter Sq.,and Isaac Westmoreland were appointed assignees.  William Harrison appears to have emerged from bankruptcy and in 1834 the Stanhope plantation was assigned to him by William Peatt Litt, John Joseph Harrison, Nevile Reid, James Thomson and Isaac Westmoreland. His other awards are also linked to the previous partnership. It is not yet clear whether the William Harrison of Strachan Place Balls Pond Road who was an executor of Henry Bromfield (q.v.) of Cheltenham was the same man as the awardee in this entry.
