Robert Lachlan Troup

I will write a better "report" as time permits, but, just like his son, several trees show illegitimate children born of George and enslaved women. Two problems exist with these children, one is that some of them were born AFTER George died in 1789 and none of them are listed in his inventory of estate.

While this lack of record isn't proof of his not fathering children, it does suggest researchers have possibly attached the wrong children to him.

You can see below that George Troup, Esq., the father of the governor, James, and Robert, had only 20 people enslaved by the time he had died. Unlike his sons, the father was a merchant, not a farmer, so he had less need for laborers and it appears that the enslaved were mostly families.

Dublin and Abina were listed together at £100 for both of them together, but, for indexing purposes, I have listed them individually but marked each one with their spouse, for example, Dublin, husband of (h/o) Abina and Abina wife of (w/o) Dublin.

Then there is Miley and her children, Hannah and Peter, who were priced as a trio but, again, I have separated them for indexing purposes.
