William Anglin of Paradise Estate

No Dates


Owner of Paradise estate in Hanover, Jamaica. Deceased by 1799. Presumably the son of Philip Anglin of Paradise Estate. The Anglin family appears to have been resident in Jamaica since the early 18th century, with no obvious connections to Britain or to families of the same name in Ireland.

Philip and William Anglin were listed in the Jamaican Quit Rent books for 1754 as the owners of 884 acres of land in Hanover. William Anglin was listed in the Jamaican Quit Rent books for 1754 as the owner of 337 acres of land in St James.
