Capt. John Duer

???? - 1814


Owner or tenant-for-life of Litte Duers, certainly grandson of Major John Duer of Duers and Fulham, nephew of Rev. Rowland Duer senior, and cousin of John Duer of Chichester, and probably son of another John Duer (d. c. 1783). His own date of death was 17/11/1814.

  1. Will of John Duer Lieutenant of HM Ship the Albion [made in 1803] was proved 13/07/1816 [by which time he was a Captain]. The will said that the 'land, negroes' etc. on the Little plantation stand limited to such uses as he chose, and he left an annuity of £100 p.a. charged on them for his mother Mary Willding [?] and £400 each to his aunts Henrietta, Francis [sic] and Elizabeth Grace. He left the estate to his cousin John Duer of Chichester, identified as the son of his uncle Rowland Duer [senior].


Vere Langford Oliver, History of Antigua Vol. I p.217. Oliver misses this John Duer, or confuses him with this man's father: he shows John Duer the brother of Rev. Rowland Duer senior as 'inherited Little Duers (?Captain of HMS Aurora in 1808) died 17/11/1814.' All three of these characterisations probably belong to the John Duer of this entry.

  1. PROB 11/1582/240.
