Thomas Minvielle

No Dates


Nephew and co-heir of Hon. John Harrison (q.v.), and a member of a Barbados mercantile family including David Minvielle senior, David Minvielle jun. and Charles Minvielle. Online genealogies show Thomas Minvielle (1747-1774) as the son of Elias Minvielle, who has three slave trading voyages in the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade Database. David Minvielle senior was probably the grandfather of Thomas Minvielle. Isabeau Minvielle, whose will, translated from French, was proved 10/08/1750 and who was the sister of David Minvielle jun. and probably aunt of Thomas Minvielle, is the only family member whose will has been traced in England.


David Minvielle sen. and jun. and Charles Minvielle 'merchants, partners and factors' of Barbados, were parties to a Chancery suit in 1743 against William Donne, C 11/812/31; PROB 11/781/375.
