Claimant or beneficiary


One of the parties in Boddington v Seton, into which the compensation money for an estate on St Kitts shown in the compensation records as Lavingtons but elsewhere as Key was paid. The parties were identified as Samuel Boddington and James Seton in 1836. This was conceivably the Grenada slave-owner James Seton (q.v.), but one of the firms holding details of the Key estate when it was advertised for auction in 1835 was Seton, Plomer and Seton, solicitors in London, one of whose partners was James Seton (d. 1836) and this appears more likely. It is not clear in what capacity the firm was acting. There was also a Dame Barbara Seton whose husband had been Lewis Brotherson a slave-owner of St Kitts (d. 1802) and who died at Bath in 1835; her will however was silent on slave-property.
