Ripton will give an in-depth insight as to why the 6th Earl got into slave owning, how he became one of the most powerful and successful slave and plantation owners in Jamaica. Why and how did he give land to some of his slaves and made sure they had a proper burial when they died on any of his plantations? Jeremiah was also a major contributor to Haigh Hall. The story that history never told.
Ripton will also give an insight to James Lindsay (7th Earl of Balcarres and Ripton's great x 3 granduncle). The talk will cover 7th Earl's visits to Jamaica, and where he may have really got the last design from in order to make the final remodelling of Haigh Hall. Ripton will also touch on the history of Jamaica at that time in regard to slave owners, slaves and the British Empire.
