The Mort connection to the Earle Family of Allerton Tower, Liverpool

Allerton Manor

Allerton Manor

For many centuries after his death, the once famous Adam Mort of Dam House (Astley Manor) genetically contributed towards a long line of well known and possibly notorious descendants.

Many were not only famous in their own lifetimes but have also contributed towards the lives we live today in our modern societies. Some secured a place in history by their industrious natures and an inherent inventive disposition. However there was also a darker side to the wealth of the merchants and gentry of 19th century Liverpool, namely the exploitation of slaves.

The Earle Family of Liverpool:

John Earle (1674-1749) came to Liverpool from Warrington in 1688, joining the house of William Clayton, MP, a merchant and ship owner of high standing in the town of Liverpool. On 10 December, 1700, he married Eleanor Tyrer and began trading as a merchant on his own behalf. Although he was primarily involved in the wine trade, like most merchants of this period he dealt in a wide range of commodities, including iron, tobacco, sugar and also those goods used in slaving ventures, and it was he who built up the family's share in this trade. In 1709, at the age of 35 he was elected Mayor of Liverpool. At his death in 1749 he was survived by only four of his seven children. Ralph (1715-1790), Thomas (1719-1781), William (1721-1788) and Sarah. Both Ralph and Thomas Earle were to follow their father as Mayor.

The following genealogical data has been kindly donated by Guy Bannerman Tod. In this story we explore the descendants of Mary Mort of Chowbent (Alder House) and how her descendants have left both good and bad footprints in the history books.

Editors Note about Thomas Earle 1754:

T & W EARLE & COMPANY

After the death of Thomas Earle of Leghorn in 1781, his business was amalgamated with his younger brother William's and on his death seven years later, the family business passed to William's sons Thomas (1754-1822) and William (1760-1839). Both Thomas and William had already been active partners. Operating from premises in Hanover Street, Liverpool, the firm of T & W Earle & Company expanded the areas of business further in partnership with Thomas Molyneux in the iron trade, and also in the wine, oil, silk and sugar trades. In the 1830s they acquired a plantation in Berbice, British Guiana, (now Guyana) which they took over as part of a bad debt. Several bundles of correspondence and documents relating to the administration of the plantation, including the use of slave, and later free black labour, survive in the collection. There is also a letter book entitled Livorno which contains correspondence relating to the Leghorn trading activities of T & W Earle & Co., for the period 1801-1808, after which, the business closed.
