John King came from Scotland and set up a trading business on St. Thomas in 1803. Later his brother William King joined him there. John King had a warehouse at 33 Droningensgade (where the Royal Carribean store is now) and in front of it he built King's Wharf which is still there. I have limited information about him and his family and would welcome any that anyone else may have. I would also be happy to share what I know of St. Thomas in those days with anyone else interested.
