Andrew Bogle

???? - 1838


Merchant of Kingston Jamaica, formerly a partner in Bogles & Co. and its predecessors in Kingston and Glasgow, then apparently establishing himself in his own name. Son of Archibald Bogle and his wife Janet Cathcart. Dunkley's estate in Vere, Jamaica, was registered to Andrew Bogle in the Jamaica Almanac (1827). He had inherited a quarter share in the estate in 1813 on the death of his brother George Bogle (1762-1813). It has also been inferred that the Andrew Bogle who was briefly owner of Silver Mount and who was attorney with George William Hamilton on Ellis Caymanas was the same man as the merchant of Kingston. Andrew Bogle the merchant of Kingston appears to have moved to Europe in the 1830s, dying in France c. 1838.

  1. Will of Andrew Bogle of Auxtours near Fontainblean [sic] France [made in 1838] proved 27/03/1839. The will opens by him conveying to his son Archibald Bogle of the East India Co. his one-fourth part of the Dunkley estate, subject to £500 payable to John Hamilton of Northpark and £1000 payable to his [the testator's] daughter Sophia Mathilda Bogle. He left his residuary estate in trust to secure an annuity of £120 p.a to his widow Sophia, with remainder to his daughter Sophia Mathilda for life.
