Claimant or beneficiary


George Greer of Lurgan counterclaimed apparently unsuccessfully as judgement creditor for the compensation for the enslaved people on Laurel Hill in Trinidad, and sought to intervene on another award in Trinidad for an estate he described as Auzonville (q.v.) belonging to John Lindsay of Dublin. The Commissioners could find no trace of a claim on Auzonville.

Greer, Lurgan Ireland: Auzonville estate of late John Lindsay of Dublin, John Lindsay granted a power of attorney to Robt Neilson of Trinidad, now Mr Neilson and Mr John Wilson, (partner of his) 'has gotten possession of these slaves.' T71/1592 letter from Commissioners of Compensation to George Greer to say that they had no record of any claims on Auzonville, Trinidad; Bernard Burke A genealogical and heraldic history of the landed gentry of Great Britain & Ireland (1879) Vol. I p. 690 shows the marriage of Catherine Greer, sister of George Greer J.P. of Armagh and daughter of John Greer, with John Lindsay of Dublin.
