Agreement between Thomas Jemmitt of Dominica, Thomas Hankey, Joseph Chaplin Hankey, Stephen Hall and Robert Hankey of Fenchurch Street, London, bankers, and Joseph Jekyll of Spetisbury, Dors, concerning Hertford sugar plantation in Dominica and slaves (with schedule) (1789). LBS has inferred the Hankeys to have been mortgagees. C111/226.

1782 [EA] - 1786 [LA] → Mortgagee-in-Possession

The mortgage was held by the firm of Thomas Hankey & Co. and could conceivably refer to Joseph Chaplin Hankey I, this man's father (d. 1773), if the mortgage had been advanced in his lifetime. However, Craton and Walvin show Wallins [sic] as offered to the Hankeys in 1779 as collateral for a debt of £8,078.
