McLaren family in Demerara, Guyana.

Posted: 1277997108000
Classification: Query
Surnames: McLaren, McAlpin
Peter married to Helen McAlpin, had son John born around 1862, Peter listed as a Sugar Planter.

Any idea what a Sugar Planter actually is, labourer, foreman,owner ?
Also I can't trace anything about this family or their history in Guyana.
My info is from John's records as he came to Scotland to get married and and died here.

Thanks

Gordon
