I am researching the Quaker and republican trader Daniel Eccleston of Lancaster, England. He lived in Lancaster during the period and was involved in Atlantic and Coastal trade then branched out into insurance. His father was William Eccleston of Whitehaven. He had a brother, Isaac who lived in Antigua during the period 1778-82 (and possibly much longer). His correspondance reveals that Daniel had contacts in New York, Barbados, Dublin, Liverpool, Manchester and Penrith.
