John Dand

???? - 1843

Claimant or beneficiary


Awarded compensation as owner-in-fee of the Byndloss estate in St Thomas-in-the-Vale Jamaica, shown as of Cumberland when he signed at the National Debt Office, and nephew and heir of Henry Marshall (q.v.). 

  1. John Dand was identified as the proprietor of Byndloss under Apprenticeship in 1837. 

  2. There are a two pieces of circumstantial evidence to link John Dand the awardee to the John Dand of Quarry Hill Estate, in the Parish of Bolton, in the County of Cumberland, which was sold after John Dand's death c. 1843. (Bolton is identified in the auction notice as being  about 5 miles from Wigton). (1) The estate, consisting of a mansion house, three cottages and about 104 acres, was built by the late Henry Marshall Esq, for his residence (Henry Marshall was the prior owner of Byndloss estate in Jamaica). (2) John Dand with William Pearson had owned Bolton Pen in St Ann in 1820.  This John Dand is presumably the John Dand whose death was registered Q4 1843 at Wigton. A plan of Quarry Hill dated 1819 shows John Dand as already the owner. The death of Henry Marshall esq., of Quarry Hill Wigton Cumberland was reported at Fenchurch Street in London in 1817. Will of Henry Marshall, Planter of Bolton Cumberland proved 01/04/1817.


T71/855 St Thomas-in-the-Vale claim no. 8 (which identifes him as of Great Britain); NDO 4/5 (which identifies him as of Cumberland).
