Noah Blisson

???? - 1775


Merchant and slave-owner of London, dying c. 1775. He was identified in 1770 as the grantor of an annuity of £300 p.a. payable out of a moiety of Les Sources on Grenada, a coffee and cocoa plantation with 20 enslaved Africans, in 1770, and separately in 1781 in the will of David Chollet (q.v.) as late mortgagor of a moiety of an estate on Grenada, presumably the same one. Les Sources has not yet been traced but the will of Noah Blisson proved in 1775 shows his estate as in the possession of William Palmer of London (probably q.v.. under William Palmer of Nazeing).
