Timothy Bellamore

No Dates


Slave-owner on Jamaica, co-owner with Edward James of Cave Valley in St Ann until some point between 1817 and 1820, probably in 1819. When the estate was then sold by Edward James to Isaac Higgin, it was subject to a mortgage of £400 p.a. to Timothy Bellamore and his wife Rebecca. There is significant uncertainty about the identity and family connections of Timothy and Rebecca Bellamore. Timothy Bellamore was active in Jamaica in the 1810s, registering enslaved people in 1817. A son of a Timothy and Rebecca Bellamore (also Timothy) was reportedly baptised at St George's Bloomsbury 04/01/1821, when their address was given as Charlton Street, St Pancras and the father's status as 'gentleman'. Timothy Bellamore the son was possibly the man of the same name who died in India in 1857. This man was a Sergeant-Major rather than an officer, which might imply he was of mixed heritage. A Rebecca Bellamore of Span's Buildings St Pancras was buried at St Giles in the Fields 23/07/1821, reportedly aged 78, which if correct would exclude her as the mother of the son baptised in 1821.

The Timothy Bellamore of Monmouth whose will was proved 13/01/1830 has no evidence of a connection, and gives his wife's name as Sarah, but he appears in online genealogical sources variously as the father or grandfather of Timothy Bellamore d. 1857.

Notes →

When Timothy and Rebecca Bellamore's son (also Timothy) was baptised at St George Bloomsbury on 04/01/1821, their address was given as Charlton Street. The son had been born in December, so it is possible the couple had come temporarily to London for the birth.
