William Winn

No Dates

Claimant or beneficiary


Claimed unsuccessfully as owner-in-fee for the compensation for the Cane Hall estate in St Vincent, the compensation for which was paid to the Baillie merchant firm of Bristol as mortgagees after Winn admitted the counterclaim. The enslaved peope were registered for William Winn by Francis Winn in 1834, implying that William Winn was by that stage an absentee, at least temporarily. Genealogical postings suggest he was connected with the US, but no such connection has yet been found and nothing further of him has been traced to date beyond two indentures of 20/10/1809 concerning land sales in Kingstown St Vincent in which he was described as 'town warden' of Kingstown.


T71/892 St Vincent no. 548; https://eap.bl.uk/sites/default/files/legacy-eap/downloads/eap345_survey.pdf [accessed 05/02/2018].
