Hi all just a quick question.
Do we know were he was actually born?
Ive checked Shadbolt & McKinnon and the Noble 24th with no results.
He was educated in Cornwall, Devon and on Jersey so perhaps a connection
to the south west of England?

This is where the family money came from. Grandfather James Porteous owner of 50 slaves in Jamaica in 1817. Puts a slightly different perspective on later events perhaps.

Wow so the family it seems derived an income directly from slavery.
Do we know where the family property in Jamaica was?
The fact that His Father was born in Falmouth may explain why He was educated
more or less in the South West of England.
