Edward Nevinson

???? - 1825


The firm of Malcolm & Nevinson acted as factors for a slave voyage by Peleg Clarke in the Thames that delivered '240 Coromantee slaves' at Montego Bay 26/04/1777, and in an earlier voyage at Lucea in 1772 for John Fowler of Bristol. LBS has tentatively identified him as Edward Nevinson, shown with Donald Malcolm as a bond creditor of Isaac William Cresse in 1778, and as Edward Nevinson of Carlisle, who appears to have lived at Carlisle from at least 1787 (when his portrait was painted by Romney) until his death in 1825.

  1. In the will of Edward Nevinson of Carlisle made in the form of letters to his brother Charles from Carlisle, the first dated October 1805 [and letters of administration for which were granted in 1825], he left a diamond ring to 'my friend' Neill Malcolm. There are no references to Jamaica property in the will but this was presumably the same man. The attestation from February 1825 show he died 'January last.'
