The History

This pedigree chart was created by the Founder to highlight her familial links with Jenny Harriott through maternal ancestors. The column to the far left shows ‘Deborah’ at the top (although she is the youngest of five children) and each ancestor to the right represents a generation. This is not a complete genealogical chart and is purely for illustrative purposes.

Exploring the history of Jenny Harriott is a key aspect of the Foundation’s Mission. Dr Deborah Gabriel will be undertaking a major research project as a Visiting Fellow of Exeter College, Oxford University (2024-25) on the history of Jenny Harriott and others enslaved on plantations in the Parishes of Saint Elizabeth and Manchester, Jamaica between 1789 and 1834.
