George Mayo

No Dates


Joint owner of Carlton Woodhouse in St Mary Jamaica with John Cosens (q.v.) between at least 1778-1783 as heirs of Henry Rose. Burnard notes that in his inventory George Mayo gave names to his livestock that mirrored those given to enslaved people. Nothing further has been traced of him to date.
