Claimant or beneficiary


Slave-owner on Nevis, apparently resident.

  1. An enslaved woman named Harriette charged Wolfe with maltreatment in September 1826. The case was heard by the King’s Bench and Common Pleas Court of Nevis on 25 September 1826. As it was the third accusation Harriette had made against Wolfe, the court decided she would be removed ‘out of [his] possession of and placed in the custody of the Hon. and Rev. J. H. Pemberton, the rector of the parish…’ It was also decided that Henriette was ‘guilty of gross insolence and disobedience to the lawful commands of her master … thereby setting an example of insubordination to the slaves’. As a result, she was to be confined in the jail for ‘48 hours only, in consideration of her having been already confined for five days, and received two severe floggings; one of 12 and the other of 18 lashes’.

  2. Wolfe's claim as owner-in-fee of the Zetland estate was unsuccessful.
