  4. John Chace Eversley was also one of the trustees of the marriage settlement of Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Mary Garnett (they married in St Michael, Barbados, in 1816).


  1. Ancestry family tree; but NB that and an alternative family tree suggests that the father was born in 1748 and died in 1823 and that the mother was unknown: see here
