No Dates

Claimant or beneficiary


Although William Derrickson Beard was in Bristol in 1835, he appears to have been a resident planter, registering enslaved people in 1817 for himself and his daughter Elizabeth, and in 1828 for 'self, Caroline Beard (his wife) and children'. There is no sign of him in Britain after 1835.
