William Hardin Burnley

William Hardin Burnley (21 April 1780 – 29 December 1850) was the largest slave-owner in Trinidad in the nineteenth century.

Born in New York City, he was the son of Hardin Burnley (1741–1823) and his wife, Catherine, née Maitland (1752/3–1827). The family moved to London in 1786, and Burnley attended Harrow School in 1793. He visited Trinidad in 1793, and eventually settled on the island. Provided by Wikipedia
