- On St. Helena in 1785 Elizabeth Renton stabbed one of her female slaves
to death. Her husband is named as James Renton, a shopkeeper.
Elizabeth Renton died April 1795. Did the above James Renton then
marry Sarah Clough in April 1800? James Renton and Sarah Clough were
my 4 x gt.grandparents and I know that "my" James Renton's first wife
was called Elizabeth. Does Elizabeth Renton have a grave on St.
Helena and, if so, I would be extremely grateful if someone could let
me have the inscription on the tombstone. Were there 2 James & 2
Many thanks - Margaret Dyson
