Granville Sharp (1735-1813) was a Scholar and philanthropist and was one of the first English campaigners for the abolition of the slave trade. He formulated the plan to settle freed slaves in Sierra Leone, and founded the St George's Bay Company, a forerunner of the Sierra Leone Company. His efforts led to both the founding of the Province of Freedom, and later on Freetown, Sierra Leone, and is thus considered to be one of the founding fathers of Sierra Leone. Taken from a white glass medallion by Catherine Andras (1775-1860).
