George Daniell

???? - 1794


Investor in annuities on 'slave-property'. George Daniell 'of Fenchurch Street London gentleman' was among a group of two dozen individuals paying in total £15,000 in 1774 to John Mills for annuities secured on two Nevis estates of John Mills (one unnamed, the other given as Clarks), when Daniell paid £1370 for an annuity of £124 10s p.a. on the lives of his thee children. He was also among a group of 16 annuitants created in 1775 when each purchased an annuity from Jacob Kladen (q.v.) secured on Kladen's St Vincent property, including named enslaved people, to raise £11,000. Daniell purchased an annuity of £50 p.a. in common with almost all the other subscribers.

  1. A John Halliday and George Daniell were partners in an iron and tinworks in South Wales until 1782. John Halliday the banker was also party as annuitant to both the 1774 Nevis deed and the 1775 St Vincent deeds, and it seems likely therefore that the two partners in the South Wales business were the same men as the two annuitants.

  2. The will of George Daniell of Great St Helens City of London was proved 26/02/1794. He divided his unspecified property among his three children Sarah, Mark Noble and A'Court.
