Claimant or beneficiary


Awarded the compensation for eight enslaved people on Koningsberg estate in St Mary Jamaica. The estate had been registered in the name 'Lynch and Latouche', and the compensation for the bulk of the enslaved people on it was paid to Peter Digges La Touche and William Digges La Touche (both of whom q.v.). LBS has inferred that the Mrs Mary Digges La Touche shown against Clermont Pen 1817-1820 was the same woman, and was the widow of John James Digges La Touche (q.v.) and previously of Edward East (q.v.), nee Mary Wilkins.

  1. In 1841 Mary Digges Le Touch [sic] appears at Dorset Place, aged 80, Independent, born Foreign Parts with Martha East, age 50, born Foreign Parts, James T. Daniell, age 25, Soldier, born out of county and 2 female servants (although one of these female servants is called Philip Savage so probably sic.).

  2. In 1823 the enslaved people were described as 'hired from Mary Digges La Touche' on Koningsberg.
