Claimant or beneficiary


Unsuccessful claimant for compensation for Mackinnon's estate in Antigua.

  1. Very likely Rachel Mackinnon nee Yeamans, widow of Daniel Mackinnon (d. 1830, a barrister from Binfield, Berkshire and son of William Mackinnon senior (q.v.)). This would make co-claimants Edmund Mackinnon and William Alexander Mackinnon (both q.v.) her son and nephew, respectively.

  2. James Hanmer Baker registered 221 enslaved people on Mackinnon's estate in 1832 as attorney to the owners Rachel Mackinnon and William Alexander Mackinnon.


T71/877 Antigua claim no. 35 (Mackinnon's). Vere Langford Oliver History of Antigua Vol II pp. 226-227 shows John Daniel Mackinnon as the second son of William Mackinnon senior of Antigua and Binfield, and two sons of John Daniel Mackinnon and Rebecca Yeamans, named implausibly Daniel Edmund Vernon Mackinnon and Daniel Henry Mackinnon respectively.
