Samuel Rennalls

9th Oct 1807 - 7th Oct 1883

Claimant or beneficiary


Trustee with others of the marriage settlement of Henry Rodon, awarded the compensation for the enslaved on Frankfield and Gordon's Stone and Crawl River, in Clarendon Jamaica. Almost certainly the same Samuel Rennalls as the trustee of Theodora Bernard on two further awards in Clarendon an the awardee of a small claim in St Catherine.

  1. In 1881 Samuel Rennalls, bank stock holder aged 73 born Jamaica was living at 15 Raby Place Bathwick Bath with his wife Agnes aged 74, born Ireland. He died at Bath 07/10/1883, will proved 23/11/1883, effects £4805 6s 8d. This Samuel Rennalls would have been relatively young to be a trustee in the 1830s: if it is the same man, as seems likely, he may have inherited the role.

  2. Samuel Rennalls was Custos of St Thomas-in-the-Vale at the time of the 1866 rising at Morant Bay.

  3. Samuel Rennalls was born 09/10/1807 and baptised the same day in St Catherine, Jamaica, son of John Powell Rennalls and his wife Mary Fearon.
