Thomas Larkins

???? - 1850

Claimant or beneficiary


Thomas Larkins appeared in the compensation records with John McKenzie and James Steele as mortgagees or assignees of mortgages on two estates in Jamaica. No partnership has been found between them: all three men appear to have been active separately as merchants primarily with the East Indies, and Thomas Larkins was probably the man whose will as merchant of Old Broad Street [and Leyton] was proved 09/09/1850 and who was in California when he made a codicil to the will in 1850.


PROB 11/2119/294. Thomas Larkins of Blackheath who had been a Captain in the East India trade c. 1800-1810 appears to have been a different man but related, probably a cousin. An earlier Thomas Larkins had been an owner of East Indiamen in the early 1780s, again from the same family, and was probably the grandfather of the two men.
