Richard Parry of Llanrhaiadr and Warfield Berkshire

???? - 1828


Sir John Lloyd Dukinfield and Capt. Thomas Garth were awarded the compensation for the enslaved people on Parry's estate in St Kitts, having counter-claimed against assignees of Mannings & Anderdon for unpaid purchase money. Dukinfield and Garth were the trustees and executors of the will of Richard Parry of Warfield Berkshire, proved in 1828, who must be the Richard Parry shown as owner in the Slave Registers between 1817 and 1828, when the enslaved people were sold to Mannings & Anderdon.

  1. Will of Richard Parry of Warfield proved 11/09/1828.

  2. Histories of the Parry family show Richard Parry as of Llanrhaiadr, inheriting Warfield from his uncle Sir John Hart-Cotton, his sister Anne marrying Walter Nisbet of Nevis, and his niece marrying John Thornton of Clapham. John Hart-Cotton was the grandson of John Hart, who has an entry in the ODNB as 'army officer and colonial governor', and what became the Parry's estate appears to have been an estate, possibly known as the Hart estate, transferred to Richard Parry after his uncle's death.
