John Vernon

???? - 1788


Shown as previous owner of the Chiswick estate and the enslaved people upon it in Jamaica 1788-1796. A John Vernon had also made the return in 1778; between these two dates the estate was shown as belonging to Matthew Wallen (q.v.). Very probably the John Vernon whose death in Jamaica was recorded in 1788.
