James Jackson (colonial administrator)
During his brief tenure as Commandant, he entered into a treaty with the King of Kombo, Tomani Bojang, for the surrender of fugitive slaves in certain circumstances. However, Gray notes, that treaty was almost exclusively honoured in the breach. It was never forwarded at the time to the government in London, and when it was discovered over a dozen years later, it was repudiated by the Secretary of State for the Colonies.
