Raynes Barrett Waite

No Dates


Slave-owner in St James, Jamaica. Unsourced online information gives him as the son of Henry Waite and Mary Barrett, and thus the brother of Elizabeth Barrett Waite and uncle of Martin Williams (q.v.). Alive c. 1823 but deceased by 1826. The similarly named Raynes Waite (q.v.) appears to have died c. 1820 and the conclusion that they were probably two different men is supported by a list of magistrates in St James in 1816 reproduced by Christer Petley that shows both Raynes Waite of Mount Waite and Raynes Barrett Waite of Blue Hole.

  1. It is not clear whether Mary Waite, wife of Raynes Waite merchant, 'West Derby' who was buried at Walton-on-the-Hill, Liverpool on 06/10/1817 aged 65 was the wife of Raynes Waite or of the Raynes Barrett Waite of this entry. Given the below burial, it appear more likely to have been the wife of Raynes Barrett Waite.

  2. Mary Appleton, wife of William Appleton and daughter of Raynes Barrett Whaite [sic] of Jamaica, was buried at Liverpool in 1812 aged 40 or 48.
