William Stewart of Grenada

???? - 1776


The will of William Stewart of Grenada (made in 1776) was proved 24/05/1777. A William Stewart was the original grantee of the Adelphi estate on Tobago as St George no. 14, and was conceivably the same man, although the will has no reference to property in Tobago: it instructed his executors to sell his property on Union Island, Grenada. The will identifies William Stewart of Grenada's brother as George Stewart of the East India Co., who was his residuary legatee after monetary legacies including £1000 to his sister Agnes Stewart of Edinburgh, £500 each to two of Stewart's executors (William Ross of Lincolns Inn and Henry Palmer of Grenada), £105 each to two other executors (John Pegus of Grenada and Charles Charles of Union island, £200 to Hugh Munro of Grenada and £100 to a London apothecary, Simon Houstoun [?] of Piccadilly.
