Sir Alexander Powell of New Sarum

???? - 1784


Mortgagee of 'slave-property' on Nevis. In 1765 Sir Alexander Powell had lent £6000 to John Lytton Coram (q.v.) to enable him to repay William Reeve of Bristol who with his late partner Christopher Devonshire had lent Coram £4000, in both cases secured on Coram's estate (named as Hobson's) and enslaved people on Nevis, valued at £22,134 currency. Under the agreement with Sir Alexander Powell, Coram undertook to consign the sugars from his estate to Charles Pearce of London. In 1783, the estate was sold to Edward Huggins and James Huggins, by Powell, his attorneys and the trustees.
