Rev. John Venn

???? - 1764


Will of Rev. John Venn Rector of St Catherine Jamaica proved 19/07/1764. He instructed his property - including 'negroes' - to be sold at auction, recording his sense that sale at appraised value was unfair. He left £3000 currency to his wife Elizabeth and £6700 to his three daughters already in England (£2600 to his eldest daughter Mary; £2100 to Elizabeth; and £2000 to Sarah) and £2800 currency to his fourth daughter Susanna Bonella Venn. He held, he said, a mortgage over Julines Beckford's Eaton estate for £3000 sterling [given in codicil as £4200], which by his codicil he assigned to his wife.
