Biography

Samuel Pepys Cockerell, lawyer of Lincolns Inn, son of the architect Samuel Pepys Cockerell (1754-1827) and brother of Charles Robert Cockerell, 'a far more distinguished architect than his father' (ODNB). Together with the banker John Biddulph (q.v.), Cockerell was awarded the compensation for 10 estates belonging to James Colyear Dawkins (q.v.) in Jamaica. Although the two men are described as trustees in the Registers of Claims, Butler believes that they were mortgagees.
