Mrs Frances Sims

???? - 1828


Small-scale slave-owner in Hanover Jamaica, shown as 'of Great Britain' in 1817 when the registration of nine enslaved people ('Pastora alias Frances Sims' and her three sons and five daughters) was made by her attorney Herbert J. James. James made another registration as attorney of Mrs Frances Sims in 1823. LBS has tentatively concluded that she was the widow of John Sims (q.v., who had died in 1814): an alternative Frances Sims, who was the widow of Charles James Sims (q.v.), reportedly died in 1816. The Frances Sims who was buried at St Mary the Virgin Walthamstow 26/02/1828, aged 77 was probably the widow of John Sims and also probably this woman.
