John Ewer the Elder and his sons Walter and John the Younger were part owners of the Nottingham Forge with John Buchanan and James Russell. Their memorial details the inept oversight of the forge by a previous overseer. They claimed the loss of 145 people they had enslaved.
Some themes their Loyalist Claim Commission memorial suggest include absentee-ownership, confiscation, and industry.
