Henry Frere

???? - 1792


Barbados slave-owner, whoses estate were indebted to the Lascelles. Reported by Hughes-Queree to be grandson of Thomas Applewhaite Frere from whom he reportedly inherited the Kingsland estate in 1749. The will of Tobias Frere II (q.v.) suggests the estate belonged first to Tobias Frere II and then to his brother Henry. No man named 'Thomas Applewhaite Frere' has yet been traced: it seems likely that this refers in fact to Thomas Applewhaite, the maternal grandfather of Tobias Frere II, Henry Frere and Applewhaite Frere.

  1. Will of Henry Frere of Christ Church Barbados proved 10/11/1792. Under the will his heir after monetary legacies was his grand-niece Dorothy Jones, daughter of his niece Elizabeth Susanna Jones (q.v.) and Robert Burnet Jones.
