Description

The arms are those of Benson, probably for Moses Benson, a Liverpudlian slave trader who fathered four children with what we would now call his life-partner, Judith Powell, a "free mulatto" in Jamaica. His will, which referred to them as his "reputed children," included a proviso that the 15,000 pound legacy to his daughter be revoked in the event she married a native of Ireland.
