Elizabeth Beckford (née Carroll)

???? - 1814


Elizabeth Carroll was the owner of the Oxford and Spring Garden estates in Jamaica inherited from her father James Carroll in 1753. The Chancery case of Susannah Hyde Beckford v Kemble and others in 1822 covered the 1763 marriage settlement and subsequent mortgage (to Richard Beckford and Rice James) by Nathaniel and Elizabeth Beckford of estates in Jamaica. The estates were unnamed but from other evidence included Spring Garden and Oxford, both in St Thomas-in-the-East.
