John Tarleton IV

???? - 1773


John Tarleton (d. 1773), Liverpool slave-trader and slave-owner, owner of an estate on Carriacou Grenada inferred to have been Mount Pleasant, and a further estate not yet traced named Belfield on Dominica. Father of Thomas Tarleton (q.v.) and John (1755-1841, also q.v.), grandfather of Rev. John Edward Tarleton (q.v.).


P.D. Richardson, American Material from the Tarleton Papers in the Liverpool Record Office (1974), [accessed 08/03/2016], which shows the ownership of Belfield and an unnamed estate on Carriacou. Given that his son Thomas Tarleton later owned Mount Pleasant on Carriacou, LBS has inferred that this was the estate shown by Richardson.
