The Davis Episode.
Towards the end of 1812 a female slave named Eliza died in suspicious circumstances.
The attorney for the estate was the Rev William Davis, and it was soon being voiced around the island that is Eliza had succumbed to a flogging he had ordered or even administered. One of his principal accusers, was John Julius President of the Council, and the man Davis had replaced as the estates attorney. In March 1813, mostly as a result of Julius's accusations, it was decided the Davis with three of his sons and a son-in-law should stand trial for murder.
Even though all were acquitted, the case, involving an Anglican minister charged with the murder of a female slave, cause a sensation in London.
