Alexander Forbes

No Dates


Trustees for Alexander Forbes held Aberdeen estate in St Elizabeth 1772-1782. Alexander Forbes 'of Scotland' had reportedly previously leased Aberdeen from Alexander McFarlane's Island estate, 'and [the estate] still belonged to an Alexander Forbes as a slave-and-sugar estate in 1772'. Neither man (if different) has yet been identified further, but either or both might be Alexander Forbes of Kingston (q.v.).
