Martin Concanen

No Dates


Clothier of Loughrea, Co. Galway, one of three men agreeing in 1826 to share the Middleton coffee estate [and the enslaved people on it] in St Andrew Jamaica after the intestate death in 1810 of the previous owner James Concanen. The estate appears to have been sold to the Duke of Buckingham before 1834.

  1. "1826, Aug. 31. Compromise between the claimants to the estate of James Concanen, Esq., decd, Martin C. of Loughrea, co. Galway, clothier, and others. Jas. C., late of St. And., J., Esq., owned a coffee mountain pln cd Middleton and 220 negroes, and died at New Providence in 1810 intestate and without issue. 3 of them share the estate."


Vere Langford Oliver, Caribbeana being miscellaneous papers relating to the history, genealogy, topography, and antiquities of the British West Indies (6 vols., London, Mitchell, Hughes and Clarke, 1910-1919), vol. 3, 'Deeds relating to Jamaica', p. 125; 126. This was presumably the same deed that appears in Caribbeana vol. 2 as 'Deed of compromise between Stephen Kenny, Martin Concanen, Jethro John Nrecknell, all of Loughrea in Ireland, and Charles More Ullithorne and Robert Langley Appleyard, both of co. Midd., and Richard Quarrell of Jamaica, plantation in St. Andrew in Jamaica. Signatures of all parties, 2 skins, dated 1826.'
