Samuel Estwick II

1770 - 1797


Son of Samuel Estwick of Berkeley Street and Barbados. The two men were briefly simultaneously MPs for Westbury.

  1. Will of Samuel Estwick of Devonshire Street St Marylebone proved 30/04/1798. Under the will he recited that he had received under his marriage settlement the estate known as Cooper's Hill of 224 acres in Barbados subject to the jointure of £800 p.a. to his wife the Hon. Cassandra Estwick, and to £1200 in legacies to each of his three younger brothers, named as Henry, Willoughby Bertie and Richard. If he died without heirs male, he was free to dispose of the estate as he saw fit and he left it to his brother Henry, together with the enslaved people on it, subject to an annuity of £200 p.a. to his sister Charlotte until her marriage and to £800 each to his two youngest brothers. In an elegiac memorandum on 1797 from Madeira he said that his father's debts were all paid other than about £50, and gave detailed instructions on the paperwork for his own debt and for the treatment of servants and others who had cared for him [but not for the enslaved people in Barbados].

Samuel Estwick was shown by Hughes-Queree as owner by 1816 and dead by 1825. To date no Samuel Estwick has yet been traced in the period, and it appears that this estate was the same as Cooper's Hill and had belonged to Samuel Estwick II (d. 1797).

Previous owner

In his will of 1797, Samuel Estwick II left an estate called Cooper's Hill to his brother Henry.
