Charles Caines

???? - 1793


Slave-owner in St Kitts, apparently resident.

The letters from Charles Caines junior to John Conyers II (q.v.) written in the early 1780s are probably from the son of this Charles Caines.


Samuel Baker's 1753 map shows 'Chas. Canes' at Deep Bay.

Essex Archives, Reference: D/DB B8, see [accessed 29/07/2020]: "Letter from Charles Caines, junior, 24 February 1782 and received on St. Kitts [St. Christopher] 29 April, referring to Conyers loss of crops due to the French encampment on his estate following the French invasion near Brimstone Hill. Referring to his own estate 'A great loss attended the estate by the absconding of the major part of the negroes from the day the French came & landed, to a week after the capitulation....and many have not yet appeared.'"
