  • Name James SLASON  [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
    • James Slawson was an important man in Stamford, a leader in Darien Parish and a large land owner.

      Administration on the estate of James Slawson, Sr., was granted to Deliverance Slawson, 16 May 1759. Inventory taken 22 may, 1759, was filed 7 Aug., 1759, by Deliverance Slawson. distribution was ordered 18 mar. 1760, to his children, viz., to heirs of Susanna, deceased, to Sarah, Elizabeth, Eliphalet, James (it appears from the probates that James was already dead), Deliverance and Thomas, ----"the widow now being deceased."

      The will of Sarah, widow of James Slawson, late of Stamford, dated 1 May, 1759, probated 12 Feb., 1760, leaves estate to her son John Webster, his wife and their children Nicholas, Samuel, Mercy, and Sarah.

      The probates on this family are confusing. It is indicated that previous to the death of James, Sr., there were four generations of James Slawsons living. The death of three of these James Slawsons within less than two years and before the settling of the estates and confusion due to the the interchange of "Sr.," "Jr.," "Lieut.," and "3d" to say nothing of plain "James Slawson" leaves certain records in doubt. Fortunately James Slawson, Sr., made several deeds of gift to various children. [1]
