Peter Beckford, Sr. (1643 – 1710) was a wealthy English landowner, businessman and, at one point, acting Governor of Jamaica. At the time of his death, he was considered the wealthiest land and slave owner in the entirety of Europe.[1]

In the 1670s, Beckford employed the Sage Thomas Kavanagh, Jr., who worked for him in Kingston. When the Caribbean Templar Laureano de Torres y Ayala and his associates visited Beckford,[2] his manor was the site of a skirmish between the Templars and the Caribbean Assassins, both of whom aimed to secure Kavanagh in order to find the Observatory.[3]

During his lifetime, he was an avid collector of historic artifacts, including such items as the Voynich manuscript. Following his death, the pirate Edward Kenway collected a large amount of artifacts, including the Voynich manuscript, which the Beckford estate had lost and was scattered across the Caribbean.[4]
