John Hall

1793 - 1868

Claimant or beneficiary


John Hall 'merchant of Liverpool' counterclaimed unsuccessfully as judgement creditor for the compensation for a group of enslaved people in Port Royal Jamaica. The compensation was paid to the executors of John Thompson (q.v.). This appears to be a different John Hall to the man connected with the Kirkpatrick Hall family and appearing in an award for the Hall Head estate in St Thomas-in-the-East Jamaica, and is probably the son-in-law and former partner of William Parke of Anfield Lodge (q.v.), the husband of William Parke's daughter Charlotte: this man died at Park Place Gardens Paddington in 1868 leaving £12,000.
