John Ellis junior

1757 - 1832


Biography

Son of John Ellis senior (d. 1781) who inherited Green Castle in St Mary, Jamaica, from his brother George (d. 1753). Of the Ellis family property, John junior inherited Nutfield, Newry and Green Castle while his brother Charles Rose Ellis inherited Montpelier and other property. The brothers agreed also to share liability for their father's debts. From at least the 1810s, John was heavily in debt, to his brother and to the London merchants Timperon and Dobinson.

The death-date of 1832 is shown both on the Hurlingham Club website and in normally reliable genealogical material, although no will has yet been found for him. He was of Mamhead House Deveon in reports of the marriage of his daughter Caroline to Joseph Pole Carew in 1810.
