John Mayers

No Dates

Claimant or beneficiary


'John Mayers' was shown as the awardee of the compensation for the enslaved people in a number of separate awards. Some of these - and some of estates attributed to him below - might in fact have been attributable to John Pollard Mayers (q.v.): John Pollard Mayers had a son John Mayers, who by the time John Pollard Mayers made his will (proved in 1853) was under a commission of lunacy. This son matriculated University College Oxford 15/06/1820 aged 19, BA 1825. In the 1820 Slave Register for Barbados, John Pollard Mayers registered enslaved people belonging to his son John Mayers, absent from the island; the entry appears to follow on without a break from John Pollard Mayers' own entry for the enslaved people on Staple Grove.
