I am interested in any further information on William Ewbank, Esq. who died in St. Ann parish, Jamaica, in March, 1800. He was a wealthy Planter and owned two coffee plantations, Albion and Bradfield Pen, in the St. Ann highlands, and also hundreds of slaves. His wife, Ann, died in Kingston, Jamaica in July, 1798. They had three daughters. The eldest daughter married Col. Charles Steer of Trafalgar plantation, St. Ann. The other two daughters, Ann and Elizabeth Ewbank, married two brothers, Col. Thomas Ashmeade of Charlton Kings plantation and Dr. Henry Ashmeade of Tydenham plantation
in 1793 and 1801 respectively. I am a direct descendant of Col. Thomas Ashmeade and Ann Ewbank. Most of the Records for St. Ann prior to 1763 were destroyed and it has been difficut to find out information on William Ewbank, but we
believe he came to Jamaica from either Durham or Yorkshire
in England and that his family belonged to the Landed Gentry
since he displayed the Ewbank family crest on his silver. I would appreciate any information on the family.
