John Gould 'of Horsham Park'

???? - 1796


Son of John Gould MP for New Shoreham 1729-1734 and Mary Bulkeley. John Gould of Horsham Park's father and grandfather were both East India Co. merchants. Both Horsham Park and Grundisburgh Hall in Suffolk, with which John Gould was also associated, appear to have been rented by him rather than owned.

  1. Will of John Gould of Horsham Park [made in 1782] proved 16/02/1796. In the will he left all his property to his daughter Henrietta Sleorgin, widow of Thomas Sleorgin. The brief will did not mention 'slave-property' specifically: the Bulkeley estate which his daughter inherited presumably descended from his mother.


  1. PROB 11/1271/177.
