slave estates- william Green
« on: Thursday 09 February 17 22:32 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to obtain information on William Green one time living in Dumfries at Nunholm but died in 1811 following an accident in Carriacou. I have reason to believe that money was used from his families estate to buy property in Rose Street Edinburgh used by mcVities biscuits

Have you seen this reference to a land sale in Carriacou that refers to William Green as a son of Janet Bell and William McVitie?
