1815 [EA] - 1815 [LA] → Buyer

Patrick Kirwan of Antigua had agreed to buy Richmond and Chapman's & Howard's estates in Antigua from the assignees of John Henderson and Archibald Neilson (trading as Tod and Co.) in 1815. It appears that the transaction was not effected. Compensation for the Richmond and Howard's estate in the 1830s went mainly to the mortgagee Nathaniel Snell Chauncy.
