Claimant or beneficiary


Attempted apparently without success to intervene in the compensation for the enslaved people on Flint River in Hanover.

  1. The estate had been John Hill's [who died in 1828], who left it to his 4 sisters, then residing in Europe [Bedlow was married to one]. Edmund Gardiner of Remmanham [sic] Lodge, Henley on Thames [Oxfordshire] was Executor, 'circumstances having rendered it expedient to file a Bill in Equity against that Gentleman to render an account of his Trust'.

Gardiner appears in the Jamaica Almanacs from well before 1828 next to Flint River, so Hills' ownership and death-date are mysterious.
