John Maclennan

In 1817 John Maclennan owned plantation Hope and Experiment, with its 286 slaves, on the west coast of Berbice.

Three years later - now known as ‘John Maclennan Esq of Lynedale, Isle of Skye, formerly of Berbice’ - he married (8 Feb 1820) Catherine Bethune (b.1792), whose two brothers were planters in in the colony. After his death at Lyndale in April 1851 there was a petition to sequestrate his estate (CS279/1718).
