Elizabeth Clark

???? - 1837

Claimant or beneficiary


Awarded the compensation for 18 enslaved people in St Thomas-in-the-Vale Jamaica as owner-in-fee, inferred to refer to enslaved people on the Heathfield estate. She has been tentatively identified as the widow of Dr George Clark (q.v), and appears to have moved to Britain some time after 1821. In turn the couple associated with Heathfield have been inferred to be the same as the George and Elizabeth Clark associated with Mount Idalia.

  1. Will of Elizabeth or Eliza Clark, widow of St Thomas-in-the-Vale County of Middlesex Island of Jamaica (made in 1821) proved 19/10/1837. In the will she reported that the annuity of £500 currency p.a. left to her by her husband George Clark was in substantial arrears, and she left the accumulated arrears and the rest of her personal and real estate to her children Emily Henrietta Weir (wife of John Charles Weir), Eliza and John (the latter a minor).


T71/855 St Thomas-in-the-Vale no. 43, Elizabeth Clark widow Great Britain owner-in-fee. John Mais of Kingston was named as an executor in her will made in 1821, and appears in the registration for Heathfield and for Mount Idalia.
