Additional Information

JOHN DANDO:
Will: 13 OCT 1809, Proved on 10th February 1810 by Thomas Heaven. 11
Obituary: APR 1810, in the Evangelical Magazine 13
Occupation: 1809, Hatmaker in the city of Bristol 14
Membership: Member of the dissenting congregation at Rodborough for 30 years and became a trustee of the Tabernacle in about 1770. 15
Residence: BET 1767 AND 1797, Rodborough, Gloucestershire 16
Residence: ABT 1798, Bristol 17

(03) John DANDO:
Inheritance: 1810, Will of John's father, John Dando, the younger. Will dated 1809. Proved in 1810. 28

(04) Samuel DANDO:
Inheritance: 1810, Will of Samuel's father, John Dando, the younger. Will dated 1809. Proved in 1810. 32
Residence: 1799, 11 Maiden Lane, New York, USA 33
Occupation: 1828, Hat maker 34

Very little is known about Samuel Dando. His father's will dated 1809 states that he hadn't heard from Samuel for 4 years and was apparently out of the country. We find Samuel residing with his brother, Stephen, in New York in 1799. According to the book, 'The Old Merchants of New York City - Vol 5, by Walter Barrett, clerk - published in 1885', Samuel was making hats for a New York merchant, Mr Norsworthy, in 1828 - "In 1798, Stephen Dando started a hat store at 3 Maiden lane...Next year Stephen took in his brother Sam at No. 11 Maiden lane. Stephen made the first hat for Mr. Norsworthy in 1798, and Samuel, who outlived his brother, made his last hat in 1828." It seems a shame that Stephen had not managed to keep his brother and father in touch with each other.

    LIFE OF ASHMUN.- We are happy to learn that the life of this eminent individual by the Rev. R.R. Gurley, is soon to be published. The biographer is in every way qualified to do justice to the virtual founder of Liberia – a man as remarkable for his great and origina powers of mind, as for his fervent piety, active benevolence and purity of heart. The work will contain not only the life of Mr. Ashmun, but will embody the history of Liberia from its purchase and settlement to the present time. Subscriptions for it are received by Stephen Dando, No. 29 Spruce street.

    Extract of a letter from Rev. James Cox, Wesleyan Methodist Missionary at St. Johns, Antigua, and Ruling Preacher on the Island, to Mr. STEPHEN DANDO, of this city, dated Oct. 18, 1838.
    "The sham slavery apprentice system" of which you speak, is abolished The people now have unqualified emancipation in all the islands of these seas. It never existed in Antigua. The Legislature gave their people freedom on the 1st of August, 1834. The island is in PROSPERITY. Our people are peaceful and industrious. The estates are all cultivated. Intelligence and Religion are spreading in every direction.
    "I feel much interested in the efforts now making in your widely extended country to 'proclaim liberty to all the people thereof;' and I should be very glad also to receive from you a periodical giving me intelligence about the progress of Anti-Slavery and Literary Societies, or other institutions for general benefit. Could you send me a copy of Mr. Thome's work on the West Indies, which has excited so much interest!"
