No Dates

Claimant or beneficiary


Awarded part of the compensation for the Anns Grove and Two Friends plantations[s] in British Guiana with James Manning and Bryan Holme (q.v.), probably as trustees for members of the Sutton and Rogers families. Bryan Holme was certainly a London solicitor: Manning and Watson have yet to be identified. 'Heaphy' may be a mistranscription. In the will of James Henry Watson of Knightsbridge Green proved 21/06/1854 he left the bulk of his property to his grand-daughter, the daughter of his late daughter Susannah Elizabeth Rogers, although no relationship has been established to the free people of colour in the Rogers family of Demerara.


British Guiana no. 576A-D. PROB 11/2194/57.
