Happy to send a little info, Senior Wallace was born in Stranrear Scotland and was a direct descendant of the famous wallace family, coincedentially his name was William Wallace and served in the British Navy in the Carribean, He loved St.Vincent very much and when his tour of duty was finished he returned to St.Vincent as manager of the Prospect Estate. He was subsequently sent over to manage the Friendship Estate whose owners were the Warners very wealthy landowners. His two sons were Charles (the one in the picture I sent you , the other was William(Old Bill) the one who introduced whaling to Bequia. I can forward pictures of him ,but much is already written about his exploits. Tony I am into the Geaneology of the Wallaces of Bequia and building a nice collection of pictures.
