William Hamilton Vincent

No Dates


Nephew and asserted heir-at-law of George Robinson Hamilton (q.v.), in which capacity he briefly took possession of Hamilton's estates in Jamaica after the latter's death in 1797. Vincent himself must have died shortly thereafter: his executors pursued an appeal to the Privy Council in 1801 arising from the transmission of George Robinson Hamilton's estates, which he had left for life to Lady Mary Walker. Nothing further has been traced of him to date.
