Claimant or beneficiary


Awardee with John Murdoch Robertson (q.v) of half the compensation for Mount Pleasant in St Vincent. There is uncertainty over the identity of the awardee. The estate was shown against 'Messrs Robertson' and [Cecilia] Douglas in the 1820s. Remarkably John Murdoch Robertson had a sister named John Robertson, identified as such in the census of 1841 when they were living with John Murdoch Robertson's family at Largs in Ayrshire.


In revisiting its analysis of the award to John Robertson, LBS had drawn on a family history website, 'Sweet family West of Scotland -John Murdoch Robertson', [accessed 25/04/2020]
