Andrew Gallaway

???? - 1846


Resident, dying in Georgetown 11/02/1846, counterclaimed unsuccessfully for the compensation on Hoff van Holland as co-owner with George Lawson (q.v.), and also almost certainly awarded the compensation for two other smaller awards in British Guiana, as well as the awards made variously to 'A. Galloway' and 'Andrew Galloway', and counterclaimed as one of the sequestrators on Sparta, all in British Guiana. He had been in partnership in Demerara and Berbice with the Douglas family of Glasgow until 1819.
