Will of Dugald Campbell, Saltspring, Jamaica, of 1818
"pieter dickson" , 22 Sep 2006 10:12:55 +010

Dear Merchant Networks
I recently became curious as to why the Jamaica Almanac from 1820 onwards listed Saltspring as belonging to "heirs of Dugald Campbell". Who were those heirs? I also recall some earlier e-mail between Dan Byrnes and Scott Malcolm in New Zealand on the names, Campbell/Johnson. Perhaps the following may shed a bit more light? And I was most interested as below to see Bligh's name mentioned again!
Regards, Pieter Dickson

Will of Duncan Campbell of Morven estate in the parish of Hanover, Jamaica

"pieter dickson"
Fri, 22 Sep 2006 20:37:51 +0100

Dear Merchant Networks, While searching for Duncan(s) Campbell of Jamaica, I have come across one of the namesake of the overseer of the Thames prison hulks, Duncan (1726-1803), who, although unmarried, still had children. His brother's name is mentioned but he gives no other clues or detail about antecedents or connections..

1810 Will of Duncan Campbell [extracted] Public Record Office, London: PROB 11/1515

I Duncan Campbell of the Morven Estate in the parish of Hanover in the island of Jamaica Esq. do make this my last will and testament

I give and bequeath unto Duncan McFarlane of [..] in the parish of St. James island of Jamaica Esq. my gold watch and unto my worthy friend and relation John Malcolm my small Bay Mare named Louisa and unto John Hog of the said parish of Hanover Esq. a cow name Pretty and her calf

I give and bequeath the following legacies to be paid in Jamaica currency

Unto each of my Quadroon reputed daughters Margaret Campbell and Christiana Campbell £100

Unto my reputed Quadroon son Duncan Campbell £200

Unto each of my three Mulatto reputed daughters by Esther belonging to the Retrieve Estate Old Works* named Susannah Campbell, Jane Campbell and Ann Campbell £100 and unto my reputed Mulatto son William Campbell by the same mother £300 and the last named four Mulatto children I will shall be manumized

Unto my Negro woman Fanny Clarke as a reward for her due attendance on me £70 and unto her youngest child known by the name of Elizabeth Campbell Clarke £30

And unto my old and faithful servant John Campbell £30 and his freedom

All the rest residue and remainder of my property I bequeath unto my brother Captain John Campbell his heirs and assigns and I appoint my said brother John together with George Malcolm of the parish of Hanover Esq. and his son John Malcolm Esq.** and the aforesaid John Hog executors of this my last will.

[Signed 6th September 1810, Duncan Campbell. Witnesses: Denis Thomas of Somerset Place, James Campbell of Duke St. West, Alexander McDougall of Lincoln's Inn.

Proved in London 13th September 1810]

[ Morven is in the middle of Hanover, close to the Westmoreland border and near Dunalva at the head of the Great Valley (Flint River Valley and quite spectacular) which was owned in the 1820s by one Archibald Campbell.

* The Retrives (Old and New) belonged to Neill Malcolm

** John Malcolm was a second cousin to Richard Dickson [d.1821]

On Genealogy, would the website be interested in copy of the 1823 Hanover census? Contains names and location (with notable exceptions who were absent at the time) of many descendants of 18th century planters, both white and brown?
