Claimant or beneficiary


David Langlands (given as Davis Longlands and David Longlands).

  1. David Langlands wrote from Balhammoch [=Balkemmock] by Dundee to Wm Kerr in St Ann's re the debt due to Mr Langlands from Roseberry plantation 20/09/1827.

  2. In the 1841 Scotland census online, David Langlands is shown as a farmer at Bulheinbock [sic] Tealing, Angus aged 68 with family members. John Langlands of Bogardo (also apparently a farmer) had inherited the Roseberry estate in Jamaica from his cousin, also John Langlands of Jamaica, and sold it shortly before his death c. 1828. David Langlands was presumably the brother of John Langlands of Bogardo.


T71/870 St Elizabeth claim no. 748; Letter T71/1608 28/08/1835 from David Langlands Balkemmock near Dundee, Scotland: David Langlands' attorney identifed as John Salmon, Langlands has also an attorney or agent in London: 'the present state of West India property can ill afford laying out any expense which can be saved - I would therefore feel very much obliged for your pointing out the least expensive mode by which I may receive the share falling to me.'
