John Murchie

No Dates


Apparently resident slave-owner on St Lucia, dying between 1822 and 1825. Shown as co-owner with Patrick McCracken of the Grand Ance or Anse estate on St Lucia. Given that the compensation was awarded to the widow of the previous owner and her new husband, it seems likely that McCracken and Murchie had failed to pay the full price of their original purchase and remain indebted to the vendors at the time of compensation.
