Adam Cameron of Surinam

???? - 1841


Owner of Alliance plantation in Surinam, where he died in 1841. Illegitimate son of Colonel Sir Alan Cameron of Erracht: known to have been in Surinam from at least 1805 but the date of his first marriage (1801) supports an earlier date.


'On the 8th April, at Paramaribo, to the inexpressible grief of his surviving widow, and great regret of a numerous circle of friends, Adam Cameron, Esq., an old and much respected planter of the colony of Surinam, and formerly one of the members of the Hon. Court of Policy and Criminal Justice. [Times, 8 June 1841]'; David Alston, Slaves & Highlanders," [accessed 11/04/2016].
