Peter Cazalet

???? - 1788


Biography

Peter Cazalet of London merchant appears as one of more than a dozen London merchants in the recitation of a deed of 08/06/1771 whereby William Byam of St Vincent sold annuities totalling £1010 p.a. secured on his estate and named enslaved people in St George on St Vincent in exchange for £10,040. The schedule specifying the annuitants referred to in the deed is missing, but the narrative suggests that Peter Cazalet and others grouped together in the third part of the deed were the purchasers of the annuities.

  1. Will of Peter Cazalet merchant of Austin Friars proved 04/04/1788. He left an annuity of £500 p.a. to his 'present wife' and the remainder of his estate among his children, three sons and two daughters.
