Race Culture in Jamaica
What, then, of Charlotte Taylor?
Daughter of the Honourable Simon Taylor?
When I looked up the Honourable Simon Taylor, the Google machine lit up! Simon Taylor was a very famous man. He was born in Jamaica in 1739, was a plantation owner and a member of the Jamaican Assembly. Simon Taylor was fabulously rich and when he died in 1813, he was one of the wealthiest men in the whole of the British Empire.
The Honourable Simon Taylor was also unmarried, and he had no legitimate children!
James Sproule and Charlotte Taylor
Breaking Cultural Chains
James Sproule of Mellmount and Jamaica was different. He had worked within the system of those times, and he had been successful. But when it came to his family, he would not allow the system to destroy what he had built. James Sproule had chosen his own path and his path was to be with his lady, Charlotte Taylor. I was getting to know James Sproule, and he was man that I admired.
