Mrs Margaret Bains of Hartlepool

No Dates


Formerly of Jamaica, but of Hartlepool in 1758 when William Perrin (q.v.) made his will, of which she was a beneficiary. The payments to her under the will were linked to an earlier sale by her of enslaved Africans on Jamaica.


'To Mrs Margaret Bains formerly of Jamaica now of Hartlepool in England £30 sterling to be paid immediately after my decease and £55 sterling per annum for life together with a release and acquital of all the sums of money paid to and for her here and in England by myself and attorneys on condition of her waving any claim to what her nine negroes sold for since my arrival in this island.'
