???? - 1772
London merchant, whose will showed an annuity on 'slave-property' in Jamaica as well as slave-ownership in the Ceded and Neutral Islands.
Will of Peter Fearon merchant of London proved 11/07/1772. He instructed his trustees to sell his estates in Grenada and Dominica and to get in his mortgages there, to raise a maximum of £10,000 towards his debts. He left his wife Mary an annuity of £800 p.a. to be paid out of the various annuities he held on the lives of three individual surnamed Touchet (Sarah, Mary and Peter), the annuity of £800 p.a. he held on Hall Head in Jamaica and £100 p.a. in consolidated annuities he held. He also left her for life his house at Woodford. He left land in Cumberland to his sister Jane Woodville for life and then to his nephew John Woodville.
The executors of Peter Fearon were reported in the will of John Hyde of St James Hackney proved in 1776 to have sold an annuity of £200 p.a. secured on Grand Roy estate in Grenada to Hyde. It is not clear whether Fearon had owned the estate: conceivably the annuity sold to Hyde was one of the Touchet annuities specified in Peter Fearon's own will.

1776 [EA] - 1776 [LA] → Not known
The executors of Peter Fearon (d. 1772) sold an annuity of £200 p.a. secured on Grand Roy to John Hyde, according to Hyde's will proved in 1776. It is not clear whether Fearon had owned the estate. He is known to have held three annuities on the lives of three members of the Touchet family, and conceivably the annuity sold to Hyde might have been one of these.
1772 [EA] - 1772 [LA] → Annuitant
In his will made and proved in 1772 Peter Fearon left an annuity to his wife to be paid out of a group of assets including the £800 p.a. he himself said he held secured on Hall Head in Jamaica.
Peter Fearon left property to his nephew John Woodville, who might have been either John Woodville of Dominica or the latter's son....
