Thomas Longlands

???? - 1820


Slave-owner in Jamaica, apparently absentee, whose path to ownership has not yet been traced, but which must have derived from Thomas Stratton or Straton (q.v.) who reportedly left his 'genteel fortune' including the Windsor Castle estate to his sisters.

  1. Will of Thomas Longlands [late of Queen Street Westminster, at present] of Charlton Kent proved 21/11/1820. In the will he left his moiety [half-share] of the Windsor Castle estate in Jamaica to his son Henry Longlands and Aeneas Barkly in trust to sell. He left £500 to his son Rev. Thomas Longlands and £300 each to his other sons Henry Longlands and Rev. David Longlands, with the rest of his estate to his daughters Christiana Longlands and Elizabeth Longlands.

  2. Christina [sic] Longlands died late of Charlton Rectory in 1862, leaving £14,000. Her sole executor was Sir George Chetwynd of Grendon Hall Warwickshire: their connection has yet to be established by LBS.
