Biography

  1. Resident slave-owner in Jamaica, whose family in the later 19th century came to Britain. The Spalding family had lived in Perthshire, Scotland, for several hundred years before 1745, and dispersed to Germany, Sweden, Jamacia, Georgia, Liverpool and elsewhere. The castle of Ashintully was the clan center in Perthshire.

  2. Hinton Spalding was the son of Robert Spalding (d.1792) and Sarah Groves Spalding. He was baptised in St. Andrew's Jamaica on 19 February 1790. The couple lived in both Jamaica and Edinburgh. They had three sons and at least two daughters.

  3. Friday, April 05, 1811 Hinton Spalding, Esq., of New Grange, Jamaica, M.D. married at Greenock, to Jane, eldest daughter of Mr. John Rankin, Merchant in Greenock. Jane's sister Eliza (1792-1826) married William Shand in Jamaica which would account for Hinton and Jane naming their son William Shand.
