Alexandre Lindo

???? - 1812


Father of Abraham Alexander Lindo (q.v.). The will of Alexandre Lindo, made in 1805, gives a misleading impression of his wealth at death in 1812, by which time he was reportedly in financial distress.

  1. Will of Alexandre Lindo of Finsbury Square proved 24/04/1812. Under the will he left charitable donations of £100 each to various Jewish charities in Kingston, and his house in Finsbury Square and an annuity of £1300 p.a to his wife Esther. He left: to his son Abraham Alexander Lindo £10,000; to his son David Lindo £1000; the interest on £8000 to his son Joseph; annuities of £150 p.a. to his daughter Mrs Rachael Franco, wife of Moses Franco and £250 p.a. to his daughter Hannah, wife of Daniel McKinlay, together with £5000 to Hannah's children at 21; and £5000 to his daughter Eliza at 21 or marriage. He left his son Aaron Lindo one shilling, with strictures on his ungrateful behaviour, and £5000 each to five of his sons Jacob, Moses, Alexander, Francis and Michael. After further monetary legacies to family, including £250 p.a to his daughter Rachael Aigar [?] he left his residual estate to his son Abraham Alexander Lindo. In a separate codicil of 01/08/1807 (proved in 1813) he said that he had recently obtained possession of a coffee estate called Pleasant Hill, which he left with the enslaved people attached to it to his son Abraham Alexander Lindo subject to his just debts.
