Claimant or beneficiary


John Wallace Harris, resident in Jamaica, awarded a small proportion of the compensation for Old & New Pera in St Thomas-in-the-East Jamaica as administrator of Eliz. Simpson [in fact Truxton] Pinnock, an annuitant under the will of James Pinnock, shown as '07/12/1829'. The bulk of the compensation went to Elizabeth Pinnock (q.v.), the widow of James Pinnock whose will was dated 05/12/1809 (and proved 26/04/1811 as James Pinnock of Marylebone).  Neither Eliz. Simpson Simpson Pinnock nor a James Pinnock with a will dated 07/12/1829 have been identified to date: there appears to have been confusion with Elizabeth Truxton Pinnock (q.v.), who was certainly an annuitant under the will proved 26/04/1811 of James Pinnock.

  1. John Wallace Harris Esq., Clerk of the Peace &c of this parish [St Andrews] for 25 years, ob.15*11 [sic] Oct. 1857 aet 53.
