Biography

Partner in the predecessor firm of Atkinson Hozier, which with the Earls of Balcarres contracted to provide 'pioneers' (enslaved people in support roles) to the military in Jamaica. He was shown as an absentee in 1826. He has not been traced further in the UK, although the James Greenfield born Jamaica aged 41 accountant who was living with his wife Emma (nee Parry) in Islington in 1861, and who had been shown as the son of 'James Greenfield gentm.' on his marriage register at Islington in 1850, was presumably the son of this man, the partner in the Jamaican merchant firm.
