David Park

???? - 1820


Partner with Robert Orr (q.v.) as merchant and slave-owner in Trinidad. The two men appear to have died within a short space of each other between 1819 and 1822. Their firm was connected with William Lushington & Co, possibly as local agents and attorneys.


London Gazette 17659 12 December 1820 p. 2330 shows the assignees of William Lushington the younger asking permission to ship goods paid for by his estate and ordered by Messrs Park and Orr (presumably estate supplies).
