John Parkinson

No Dates


Possibly nephew and heir of Cuthbert Parkinson (q.v.). There is enough commonalty in the entries for Old Hope and Seven Rivers (e.g. the presence of William Boates as trustee, the Wedderburns as attorneys, the involvement of Martin Williams) to conclude that it is the same man for both estates. It is not yet clear whether 'Dr John Parkinson', shown for Seven Rivers 1778-1780, is the same or a different man.

  1. William Boates and Francis Ingram, the surviving trustees of John Parkinson of London, Jamaica merchant, advertised the payment of a dividend from the trust estate of John Parkinson Feb. 4 1793.


  1. London Gazette 13499 02/02/1793 p. 101. This is presumably tied to the suit of Parkinson v Ingram, for which documents survive at TNA in Kew: C 108/174.
