Henry Archbould junior

No Dates


Henry Archbould junior was listed in the Jamaican Quit Rent books for 1754 as the owner of 1000 acres of land in Clarendon. There is potential for confusion here among the three generations of Archbould active in Jamaica in the middle of the 18th century. Vere Langford Oliver shows a Henry Archbould (Member of Assembly 1741); a second Henry Archbould, son of the first, whose death-date Oliver gives as 1747 or possibly 1756; and Henry Archbould (bapt. 1741, d. 1805). The latter appears young to be recorded as owner of land in 1754, and accordingly LBS has entered him under Henry Archbould the youngest (q.v.).

Henry Archbould late of the said parish Esquire deceased for payment of £8,000, with interest devised by the will of said Henry Archbould to his daughter Sarah Elizabeth Archbould and for other the purposes therein mentioned." Henry Archbould the minor son and heir here appears to have been the man labelled 'Henry Archbould the youngest."
