William Beckford

WILLIAM BECKFORD   1709 1770 was a well-known political figure in 18th-century London, who twice held the office of Lord Mayor of London (1762 and 1769). His vast wealth came largely from his plantations in Jamaica and the large numbers of slaves working on these plantations. He is often referred to as "Alderman Beckford" to distinguish him from his son William Thomas Beckford, the author and art collector.  

Beckford was born in Jamaica, the son of Peter Beckford, Speaker of the House of Assembly there, and the grandson of Colonel Peter Beckford, sometime Governor of the colony. He was sent to England by his family in 1723 to be educated. He studied at Westminster School, and made his career in the City of London.
