Claimant or beneficiary


Resident merchant of St Vincent, but in Britain at the time of the compensation.

  1. Richard Rees of St Vincent was listed as a subscriber to Charles Shephard's An Historical Account of the Island of Saint Vincent, published in 1832.

  2. Will of Richard Rees of the Island of St Vincent proved 26/09/1843. Under his will he left a number of monetary legacies including £1000 to his sister Jane Bottrell, and £500 each to the four daughters of his sister Mary [Hunt]; an annuity of £100 p.a. to Ann Green ('or Zebra' [sic]); £2000 to the son of Charlotte Seaton called Evan Rees; and £2000 to his godson Charles Agustus [sic] Grant. His residuary heir was his brother Evan Rees; as Evan Rees most likely would sell his property 'here' [in St Vincent], Richard Rees instructed that preference be given to Henry E. Sharpe in the purchase of Ratho Mill.
