A THIRD Volume having been completed, I take this opportunity of
again conveying my thanks to all supporters, and especially to
those who have contributed articles.
I may mention more particularly Mr. F. CUNDALL, Mrs. B. F. SCAR-
LETT, Miss M. NEMBHA'BD, Rev. Dr. L. B. THOMAS, Mr. J. BROMLEY,
Mr. N. DARNELL DAVIS, and Mr. E. G. SINCKLER.
The Supplement of Book-plates was also largely due to that indefati-
gable collector Mr. F. CATTLE.
The Lists of early settlers and of testators have been of much use to
a wide circle of readers; the M.T. of West Indians in this country have
been the means of rescuing from oblivion the names of past worthies;
and the pedigrees have often served to again bring into touch forgotten
A visit of six months' duration to the Islands last winter enabled me
to investigate the local records and to collect a mass of notes, some of
which will be embodied in a separate volume dealing with the M.I. of
Barbados and the Leeward Islands
In the coming year a List of Wills recorded in Barbados will appear,
and the Parish Register of St. Thomas, Middle Island, St. Kitts, will fill

ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS.
A correspondent writes (I think it was Major Phipps): Ann Campbell was
the dau. of another James Tierney, Esq., of the firm of Tierney, Lilly & Roberts
of Lawrence Pountney Lane, London. He was also of Theobald, Herts, from
where his other dau. Eliz., mar. in 1771 Constantine Phipps, formerly of St.
Ann mar. 1, Isaac Elton, Mayor of Bristol; 2, Colin Campbell of Brock
Street, Bath. Mr. James Tierney, died at Stapleton, near Bristol, on 12 Jan.
1781, and was probably buried in the Cathedral by his wife. Will proved in
P.C.C., in 1781, of which Adm. James Young was an Exor. I think Jas.
Tierney had no connection with Jamaica, except perhaps through trade.
Applewhaite Frere, entered Eton 31 Oct. 1765, was adm. Fell. Conm. of St.
John's Coll., Cam., 19 March 1771, aged 18, M.A. 1776. Adm. to Lincoln's Inn,
14 Jan. 1775.
Major Phipps writes: Eliz. Phipps was certainly not sister of Capt. James
Phipps, all of whose brothers and sisters are known to me. She was probably his
dau., born about 1683.
1t paragraph. This Eliz. Pym cannot be the dan. of Capt. James Phipps,
who himself was born in 1653, marrying about 1678-80. I suggest that Col.
Pym mar. twice.
The Editor saw recently at Nevis a Butler deed, dated 28 Feb. 1754, by
which it appears that Tho. Pym mar. on 15 Sept. 1730, Eliz., one of the daus. of
Tho. Butler, their marriage settlement being dated 7 July 1730. Eliz., relict of
the said Tho. Pym, mar. in 1744 John Dasent, late of Nevis, deceased, and he
died 7 March 1752.
Jane Lanhather of Nevis, widow. Will dated 23 Oct. 1693. All est. to my
granddau. Jane Pym, widow of Tho. Pvm, late of Nevis, and to Tho. Pym, son of
Eliz. Pym (his father Chas. Pym) equally.
The Editor obtained many additional notes in Barbados, which will appear in
Delete lines 19 and 20. Line 22. Mrs. Cath. Johnson was n6e Williams.
Mr. G. F. Judah writes to Mr. F. Cundall: 1 am sorry that the friend who
gave you the information that the 'old Town' of Morant Bay was at 'Church
Corner' was mistaken. There was never any other town than the present one.
Church Corner is a locality deriving its name from its being the corner which you
turn into when you leave Morant Bay to go on the road to the Church."
Xli ADDITIONS ALD CORRECTiONS.
For Cannt" read Caunt."
Eleventh line from the bottom. For "Cat" read "Cod Pen, afterwards
known as the Hounslow Estate."
Sixth entry from the bottom. For "Field" read "Ford."
The Rev. Dr. Thomas points out that some confusion has arisen owing to my
arrangement of the notes. Note 1 on p. 215 refers to the entry of 21 July 1750
on p. 216. Note 2 on p. 216 refers to the entries of 25 May 1812 and following
paragraph on p. 217. On p. 220 the two entries of Charles Symonds probably
relate to two children, and there was no error on Dr. Thomas's part in transcribing
Ind're 1 April 1699 between John Bourriau, merchant, and Peter Fraise.

Sa.aaita: 3escription of the principal
(ABOUT 1720, SIR NICHI LAWES, GOVERNOR.)
The following interesting letter has been transcribed by Mr. N. Darnell Davis
from the Records at Fulham Palace. It was written to the Bishop of London by
the Rev. Win. May, Rector of Kingston, whose will see in Vol. I., p. 261:-
This may serve in some measure to make an estimate of this people from the
There is not six families who are well descended as gentlemen on the whole
Island. The original character Your Lordship has in Sir Rich'l Baker's Chronicle
& Patrem sequiter sua proles. And as for those Englishmen that came as
mechanics hither, very young, and have now acquired good Estates in Sugar
Plantations and Indigo, &c., of course they know no better than what maxims
they learn in the Country. To be now short & plain, Your Lordship will see that
they have no maxims of Church or State but what are absolutely an'trchical.
There is a mystery I'm sure which yourself, My Lord, & our ministers are
puzzled to unfold, to see the printed Votes, scolding like Billingsgates, as if our
Governor and Council were on the right side, that is to say, ready for the true
maxims of our Constitution, and the Assembly, assuming more than our House
of Commons pretend. I doubt not but your estate Creolians tell you that this
is only the effect of the two Parties, Whiggs and Torys as we have at home, and
that the Govr & Council moderate between th in by the right maxims of our
Constitution. But, Your Lp. cannot but see how it would be to kick against the
pricks, to attempt to have not only a single Act of Parliament, but a Cumulative
Law (of which my Lawyer, sub rosa, assures me, there are no less than 25,
all relating to one another) put in execution, though the fact is notorious.
SNothing is known about him.
Accordingly, any pragmatic fellow; an Officer or Justice, when he thinks fit, will
go out of our churches before sermon is ended, to disturb our Congregation,
contrary to the same statute, tho' the Penalty for the Laymen is, for the first
fault 65 pounds sterling. This can be no wonder if Your Lp. consider that our
estate men now are all like Jonah's gourd, and novi homines.
The Governor* himself was Apprentice to one Rabey in Spanish Town, who
sold locks, & nails, pots, frying-pans, bills, axes, hinges, hammers, &c., and, there
are people alive now, who remember that he went barefooted, & bare leg'd, with
shoos on, as was the custom for most young shop-keepers & planters in those
The famous Peter Beckfordt his Father came with 2 or 3 Negroes on the
Island, a small time after it was taken, & being a hunter, he & his Negroes catch'd
horses and sold them again, for some years, by which he made a beginning of his
The great Colonel Gale+ his father was a horse-catcher, for all his prodigious
Estate, and he is nevertheless as illiterate as his Father was.
When the Spaniards were driven out of the Island, they left great flocks of
cattle, sheep, & horses, which they had lodged in the woods when the Invasion
began. This afforded an occasion to a good many of those, who are now prouder
than our Dukes & Marquesses, to so make a Livelihood of, & to lay the foundation
of the Estates they now enjoy.
There are three Creolians in England who have had English Education, &
make a figure at London with their Estates in this country: Mr Langley, Mr Low,
& M, Dawkins. The Fathers of two of them were but mean men. Mr Dawkins'
Father was an overseer here first. The Father of Mr LowI| (called Colonel Low)
was, as I have heard, some of such employment as a Porter in Leadenhall Street,
but he set up here as a Surgeon. Mr Langley's Father was a Turkey Merchant
who had misfortunes in his business, but came over here with a considerable
stock, was a man of good education, a good man & man of honour.
In our Council now, I shall shew you that tho' they be all estate men, & of
the greatest, yet are they all of the same original. Mr Bernard's Father was a
man of Education, and had some creditable beginning. The two Moores' Father
was an illiterate, poor, but honest man, who came hither from Barbadoes, & began
Governor Sir Nicholas Lawes wrote in his will in 1730 that he was "born in 165* of
honest & loyal parents who suffered for their loyalty to the Royal Family in the late Grand
Rebellion." His mother brought him to Jamaica in 1663, and he resided there fifty-four years.
His family appears to have been settled in or near Compton Chamberlain, co. Wilts.

In 1659 Capt in Richard Beckford of Lndmdon was trailing at Jamaica. In 1668 Pepys wrote
that (apt. leckford had presented himn with a noble silver warming pan. In 1670 it was stated
that Alderman Beckford (later Sir Thomnis Beckford) derived 2000 a year from his plantation
in Jamaici. His nephew Peter, bapt. at St. James, Clerkenwell, in 1643, Lieut.-Governor,
died 1710, aged 66, M.I. in St. Cath. The family seems to have included several prominent
citizens of London, of whom the cadets doubtless migrated to Jamaica.
$ Col. Jonathan Gale of St. Eliz-abeth, died 1727. His father, also Jonathan, patented
533 acres in 1673.
lHetlry Dakins, Sen., esq., of St. Andrews, died 1683, aged 43, and was of an ancient family
in Warwickshire. Col. Rich. Dawkins of Clarendon, of a Leicestershire family, died about 1698,
and owing to the names being somewhat similar there has been confusion in their pedigrees.

meanly, but had success. These two Brothers, John and Samuel,* Councillors,
have been some small time at Oxford University, are Masters in Musick, well
bred, and have a competent smack of the belles lettres. They are very civil to
clergymen, & all men, & have morals enough which would have qualified them for
the highest character of Gentlemen in the Augustan Age of Rome. But, as to
their Christian Religion, no man here can say what they are, for they don't hardly
come to church at all. Samuel has been in his Parish Church but once in five
years. They outwardly, with Dr Hoy, profess to be strenuous for Mr Whiston's
new Vampt Arrian principles, while they carress the formerly mentioned Mr Fry,
& have now taken him home to the house of Samuel, for a constant companion, if
not for something else. But, they are rigid for the anarchical principles of the
country. John goes now for Eugland, & I know, has sense enough to hide these
matters when there, & deny them if asked about them; and, so will they all,
except when the country men get together, for certainly, no noble Englishman
can be more zealous for our excellent constitution than they are for the present
condition of this unhappy Island.
He called Colonel Roset is a cooper by trade, and wrought with his apron for
dayly hire since he came here. He is no immoral man, but you may imagine
whether fitted to be a tool to the others who are men of parts, such as the two
Moores, & Mr Bernard who is a Lawyer. This man appears to be for the true
maxims of our English Constitution, if you'll judge, my Lord, by the Governor's
speeches, & the Council's proceedings with the Assembly. For all these discourses
and arguments are his composition; and yet, for all this, he is as much for the
anarchical principles of the country, when out of the Council, as Peter Beckford,
who wears no mask, and is the God of the Criolians; for, he is equal in parts and
learning to Mr Bernard, & having so many sugar-works & vast territories in Land,
the country Natives believe that for the good of his children, 'tis impossible for
him to do anything but what is the true interest of the country. And no men are
greater than they. And, as for the Chief Justice, who is the second man in
Peter's Party, Mr Bernard and he are hand & glove.
Another of our Councillors is called Colonel Gomersel,t bred a Faetor here, is
a fair moral man. His Father was a waterman who played between Passage Fort
and Kingstone Village, &c.
He called Colonel Archpold, the Councillor, his Father was a mean man, after
the taking of the Island, but a small Planter, and relations (?) to the neighbours who
came to settle after him, to whom Colonel D'Oyly (then Governor) used to give
many a dram of his bottle, which was a good lusty cane he niployed upon
complaints made. He was wont to send for him in a morning and hear both
parties, and then called for his Drain Bottle to treat him with. He and his
brother Henry are civil, well-bred men, but no one can tell their Religion.
There are many more great estate men on the Island, but these, excepting
one or two more, are the men who have a Notion of our Constitution, and who
have found out the way to blind you at home with these sham-fights, & in all
probability will continue to govern the Island, and hand down their anarchical
principles to their Posterity; for, it is no matter whether the Hamiltonians (so
called), or the Beckfordians be at the uppermost spoke of the wheel, these
principles will and must continue,. unless God should bless our Ministry to take
some pains to be informed of these matters.

student of Inner T. 1703 (his father of Jamaica.) (Foster.)
t Capt. Stephen Rise arrived with Venables in 1655. Lieut.-Col. William Rose was father
of Dr. Fulk Rose, who died 1694, and of MiLjor Francis Rlse, Speaker 1702, who died 1720,
aged 66. Thos. Rose of St. QOth., who died 1724, was a nephew of Charles Price.
$ Ezekiel G., a Colonel and M. of Cjun'il, died 1734, aged 70. (.1.I. Archer, 96.)
See pedigree, II., p. 339. Col. James A., M. of Council, died 1721, and his brother, Col. Henry,
in 1709. Who, then, is the present Henry ?
Now, whether it may not be destructive to our State to have a generation of
subjects bred up so, who have great Estates, and will come over all, or most of
them, in times, to live with us, do poyson Englishmen in their principles. This
consideration is of much more importance, when your Lordship shall be farther
informed of another stratagem for these ends which they have got, which is this.
The only Act of this Island for bringing over White Men, whom they are sensible
of themselves, to be the only defence of the country, is.that called the Deficiency
Act: viz. Every planter for 40 Negroes which he has shall procure from
England one white man, i.e., a Britton or Irishman, or pay 13 19s. per an.,
which is termed Deficiency Money. They scarcely bring any in respect of what
they might do (but pay the Deficiency constantly). If Your Lordship considers
that it is a certain truth, which I can demonstrate; and the late Secretary of the
Island, Mr Wood, an Englishman, in his Essayes about Trade, and the improve-
Ient of this Island, has asserted that there are not on the Island of White
persons capable in any manner of bearing Arms, reckoning (according to the
vulgar saying) rag, tag, and bobtail, 2500.
Now, what is this number to govern at least 90,000 or 100,000 Negroes. It
is manifest that the Spaniards, our Neighbours, when they, by Providence, turn'd
their Arms of two Expeditions, at one time one against Pensicola, and otherr
against Providence, ha I they united them and made the descent on us, we must
have been a sacrifice, and an easy prey to them.
Next, if one half of this noble Island is certainly uninhabited, & may be
hundreds of years unmanured upon the present maxims, this deserves serious
consideration of our Ministry. The Government at present is anarchical, but
nearest to any form of Aristocracy. And this seems to be the principal aim of
all our great estate men now, to turn it into an Aristocracy in time, and make
use of the mentioned signs for this purpose.
Tho' some of the Councillors do make occasional conformity for once in com-
municating with the church, but never more, others never.
Mr Pennant's* Father had some beginning that was creditable, but left but
an ordinary Estate behind him. Now, the son having got the escheat of Cupos
the Dutchman, as is related in the pamphlet The Groans of Jamaica, is become a
Councillor, & a vehement Propagator of the country principles, Whiston's, and
John Morant,t mentioned Councillor, was brought up a shoemaker, is a moral
man. Pretended to be of the Church, but vehement for the country principles;
therefore variable, and a fit tool to these mentioned before, for any new emergency,
to pull down the Church, &c.
There is our Chief Justice: no man can tell his Religion. He has never
quiilified himself (& lie has held it since my Lord Hamilton's time) by the Act of
parliament. lie has risen from a very mean beginning, though himself and
brothers have great Estates.
Colonel lleywool, lately Governor, Mammon is his God, & vehement for the
present corrupt principles; and, his son, Jemmy, another colonel, and most
wicked debauchee, his Heir.
.lM Beckford's Brother, Tom,lI Colonel too, is a Libertine, & of the country
principles, & has a great Estate. He has kille I his man, and so has his Brother
Peter, but this makes neither a bit more Religious. He was a Couucillor in
Colonel Heywood's time, & his graceless soi was Governor of ye Fort at Port
Royal, a post worth 500 at least (Libs.) per ann. And so these Estated men
govern the Island at this rate. Their brothers, sons, &c., let them be never so
Capt. Giffard Pennant of Clarendon had a grant of land 1665, and died 1677, leaving a son
Edward, Chief Justice 1707, Mi. of Council 1725, who died 1736, aged 64.

worthless, are put into all the honble & profitable posts; and, let either My Lord
Hamilton's Party, as they are called (for a cloak), or Mr Beckford's, have the
Council, this is the disposition of the body politick.
There is another Councillor still: one Mr Gregory,* a man of some education
and parts, but a Libertine, & of ye country principles, tho' by the Minutes of the
Assembly, in England you would be apt to think him stanch for our Constitution.
His Parents had an obscure beginning here also.
And, as for the late Colonel Peak,t his Father taught poor boyes here at first,
as a Schoolmaster; and, when K. James was on the Throne, & the Duke of
Albemarle was sent over with Father Churchill, to pervert the country by force,
if not by fair means, this good prebendal Church of England schoolmaster
publicly gave God thanks that he had lived to see the time that he durst own his
Religion, which was the Popish.
Next, there is now another Councillor, Colonel Sadler, a man bred a factor,
and has had some education. Is a man well bred, perfectly civil, & of parts.
His Father was another schoolmaster, & a known Papist too. He is an occasional
conformist, but, both he and the late Mr Peak (who has left a good Estate) is
rigid for the present state of the country principles.
Our Council, viz., His Matie's at home, have thought fit hitherto to grant
License to every Planter to run as much land as he thinks he may be able in his
life time to manure, & in the mean time to pay one halfpenny pr acre pr an.,
which is termed quit Rents. But the end of this is quite perverted. And all the
great Sugar-Planting men mentioned, & others have run out ten times as much
land as now they are able to manure (paying quit rents). Some have run out
40,000 and 50,000 acres of land, as Peter Beckford and Colonel Gale. Some
15,000, some 10,000, some 8000, some 7000, besides what, with their utmost
ability they are able to manure. Must the King's good subjects at home, who
are as capable to begin plantations, as their Fathers, and themselves were, be
excluded from their Liberty of settling Plantations in this noble Island, for ever,
& the King and Nation at home be deprived of so much riches, to make a few
upstart Gentlemen Princes? The remainder of the Land which they have run
out is every whit as good as what is already planted. And could these present
Planters be ever capable to cultivate one Uth or 7'h, or 10h1 of what they pay quit-
rents for, they will have much greater Estates then our greatest Dukes at home;
and this Aristocracy, and this accession to our Nobility they must necessarily have
at heart. This must be the grand project of our Creolian Politicians, if we may
judge of men by their actions. Every Englishman who is not one of them in
interest, feels their exorbitancies often; which made the late learned M' Barrow,
the Lawyer, oftni say that this People, innuendo the Jamaicans, ought to be
governed with a rod as we do children. And to corroborate their interest &
grand project, they have incorporated two Lawyers, men of parts, among them,
by marrying them to Sugar Works: Mr Kelby and Mr Melling. These are the
present circumstances of the Island, & the test of all English!men who are Lovers
of our Constitution. Your Lordship's assistance, which has been so advantageous
to our Nation, may, by God's Blessing contribute much to change those for the
better, which is the hearty prayer of, My Ld,
Your Lp.'s most humble Servant.

From the Report of the Parliamentary Committee, printed 28 April, 1800,
42 fos., the following abstracts have been made.
It covers the three cases of (1) Alexr. Houstoun & Co., (2) Ex'ors of Charles
Ashwell, deceased, and (3) Wm. Johnstone of London.
ALEX. HOUSTOUN & CO. OF GLASGOW.
By certain Acts of Parliament of 35, 37 & 39 Geo. III., Exchequer Bills to
the amount of 240,000 had been advanced in 1795 and 1797 on behalf of Win.
McDowali, James McDowall, Andrew Houstoun and Rob. Houstoun Rae of
Glasgow, Merchants and Partners, trading as Alexr. Houstoun & Co., to persons
connected with Grenada and St. Vincent. The above debt, amounting now with
Interest to 265,008, was secured by their Bond, by Sureties for 180,000,
on Estates in Scotland and a Mortgage on Mr. Wm. McDowall's estate called
Millikens in St. Vincent.
Owing to the losses occasioned by the late War and Insurrection and in-
cautious acceptance during peace, the Firm had been unable to repay any
instalments to the Government without occasioning great injury to their
Sureties, their Creditors, and the Public at large."
During the eight years 1792-1798 the annual balances due to the Firm
averaged over 340,000, and in 1799 the following balances were due to the Firm
from these debtors:-
Munro, McDowall & Co. 24,871
Munro, McDowall, McFarlane & Co. 46,245
Munro & Co. 41,158
Munro, McFarlane & Dougall 104,394

Laurence McDowall 12,399
William Nicholls 22,584
Mount Alexander Estate* 73,339
70,000, part of the above 240,000, was advanced in 1797 for the House of
Monroe in Grenada, but Mr. M.A has died creditor to them to a great amount.

The estimated clear Surplus of 423,736 remained for the liquidation of the
debt to the Government. It was further proposed that there should be an exten-
sion of time given and the debt repaid by three equal instalments in 1801, 1805
and 1806; further sureties of 145,000 given; all the real estate conveyed to
Trustees; the Firm being authorised to call in debts and wind up their affairs.
In Burke's Landed Gentry is a pedigree of 3Macdowall of Garthland, Co.
Renfrew, from which it appears that Col. Win. Macdowall purchased in 1727 the
Barony of Castle Semple, and died in 1748. He married 1, Tovie, daughter of
It appears that in 1798 there was a Conveyance of an Estate in St. Vincent of Win.
Milliken's to Wmi. McDowall, Esq., of Castle Semple. It produced in 1799 185 hor~shlads and
the St. Kitts one (not named) 220 hogsheads.
Mrs. Milliken of Milliken, and had a son Wm., born in 1700. He married 2,
Isabella Wallace, and had a son James who went to the West Indies."
Wm., the eldest son, born 1700, had two sons: 1. Wm., of Castle Semple,
M.P., who died, bachelor, in 1810, and 2. James, Provost of Glasgow.
These two brothers are presumably the partners of A. Houstoun and Co.
alluded to in the foregoing Report, though Burke is silent on that point.
Castle Semple was apparently sold to John Rae-Harvey, President of
Grenada, who died in 1820.
In 1722 Wm. Macdowall, Esq., and James Milliken, Esq., were appointed
Executors in St. Kitts by Walter Hamilton, Esq., and in Baker's Map" of
1753, Wm. Macdowall, Esq., is entered as owner of a plantation in the parish of
St. Mary Cayonne, and James Milliken, Esq., as owner of one in the Parish of
St. Peter Basseterre.
1738, Jan. 24. Wm. Mcdowell and James Millicken, M. of Council of St. Kitts,
were both absent in Scotland. (B.T. Leeward I., vol. 26, x. 47.)
1780, Nov. Alexander Houston, esq. late of the Island of Grenada, to Miss
Mackie of Glasgow. (" Town and Country Mag.," 671.)
In Burke's Landed Gentry is a short pedigree of Houstoun of Clerkington,
co. Haddington, headed by a Col. Andrew H. of Jordan Hill, co. Renfrew, who
died 2 Oct. 1800; also one of the ancient family of H. of Johnstone Castle, but
there is no allusion in either to a branch connected with Grenada.
In the above Report there is, however, a note under 8 Oct. 1799, of a Bill of
Exchange for 1,196 on "Alexander Houstoun; Esq. of Clerkington payable in
CHARLES ASHWELL OF GRENADA, DECEASED.
"The Executors of Charles Ashwell, Esq; late of Ayot St. Lawrence in the
County of Hertford, deceased; in Account with the Commissioners for the Issue
of Exchequer Bills to Persons connected with and trading to the Islands of
Grenada and St. Vincent." A sum of 16,OCO had been advanced him in Sept.
1797 secured by his Bond, a mortgage on his interest in the Kingston estate, St.
Vincent, and sureties for 32,000, and the interest due to the 25th March 1800
was 2,038 and unpaid. It appears to Your Committee that Mr. Ashwell was
one of the greatest Sufferers by the Insurrection. He was possessed, at that
Time, of three Estates in Grenada, called Madey, Belvedera, and La Fortune;
the two first of which he afterwards sold." The loss sustained on those three
Estates is estimated, in a Report of certain Commissioners appointed by the
Legislature of that Island, to have amounted to 52,601.
Stores supplied and Payments made by Charles Ashwell, in his Lifetime, on
Account of the La Fortune Estate, since the Restoration of Tranquillity in
Grenada, after the Insurrection and Rebellion which happened there in March
Paid Mr. Law on Account of the Debt owing by Mr. Ashwell to
Lushington* & Law, the Certificate granted by the Exchequer

Shipments by Lushington & Co. from 1797 to 30th April 1798 1,253
Bills from Grenada, paid by John Browne, Attorney, to Charles
Shipments by Lushington & Co. from 1798 to 30th April 1799 382
William Lushington of this Firm was in 1800 M.P. and Agent for Grenada. G.
Lushington, Esq. of this Island d. 1 Feb. 1803. (" G.M.," 382.)
Besides the above Payments, Mr. Ashwell expended upwards of
800 for Purchase of Mules, Horses, and Asses for the Estate,
and paid Bills drawn from Grenada for the Maintenance of his
Negroes during the Insurrection that is such of them as could be
collected within the Posts retained by the Troops, at least 1,200 2,000
The Devisees have paid on Account of the Estate since
Mr. Ashwell's death 6,493
They have received Crop sold 3,281
And 96 Hogsheads of Sugar, supposed to

THE CASE OF WILLIAM JOHNSTONE OF LONDON,
On 28 Nov. 1795, 2000 was advanced him and on 4 April 1797 8000
secured by his Bond and Sureties for 20,000. The total debt with Interest to
25 March 1800 being 11,209.
Debts of 10,445 on Granton and 10,789 on Boisjency contracted since the
Insurrection, as well as 7,170 contracted previously, have been paid.
In the Report already referred to of the Commissioners appointed by the
Legislature of Grenada, the Losses on Mr. Johnstone's Estates (then called
Upper and Lower Granton) in that Island are estimated at 13,609. Mr. John-
stone appears to be possessed of Two Estates in Grenada, now called Boisjency
and Granton. The First consisting of what was formerly Upper Granton, with
the addition of some Lands which he purchased and joined to that Plantation,
calling the whole Boisjency. The other the same with'what was formerly called
He had last Year made a Sale of an Undivided Moiety of Granton to Messrs.
Henderson & Abernethie (Two of his Sureties who have lately become Bankrupts)
for 13,000. The Purchase not being completed at the Time of the Bankruptcy,
Mr. Johnstone, who had continued in Possession, has come to an Agreement
(during the Sitting of Your Committee) with the Assignees of the Bankrupts
for rescinding the Sale.
Taking the Price which was to have been paid for the Moiety as the Measure
of the Value of the Whole, this Estate is worth 26,000, and is stated to be sub-
ject, only as to a Moiety, to a Mortgage for 5000, to certain Trustees, in Trust
for Mrs. Henderson, but that sum not payable till Mr. Henderson's Death."
"Estimate of Boisjency.
300 acres in Cultivation, at 40 per Acre 12,000
500 acres in Woods and Brush, at 10 per Acre 5,000
Works and Buildings 5,000
150 Negroes, at 70 Sterling 10,500
35 Mules and Horses, at 50 Sterling 1,750
Or, according to its Produce, will make per Annum with its present Strength and
the Addition of a little Task Work, 200 Hogsheads of Sugar, Average Value 25,
5000. Deduct for Task Work 800. Total 4,200 which at Eight Years
Purchase is 33,600.
On this Estate Mr. Browne had a Mortgage for 5000, and Mr. John Hankey
another for 900, which they are stated to have agreed to release.
The whole Value of the Property, therefore, after deducting the only
remaining Charge, would, on the foregoing Estimates, appear to be 55,000, the
Debt to Government being 11,20!." It is proposed to repay by four annual
instalments, to find new Sureties and convey estates to Trustees.

NEMBHARD OF JAMAICA.
My great-great-grandfather, Dr. John Nembhard (1711-1777), said to be of
Dutch extraction, took out a patent of naturalization as a British subject in
Jamaica, bearing date 8 Aug. 1745. In March 1758 he received a grant of land in
St. George's parish, Jamaica, and in the patent for this he is described as having
" transported himself with his servants and slaves into our said island." I shall
be glad if anyone can tell me of any trace of him, or others of his name, having
been found in either one of the other slave-owning islands, or in Virginia.

Our Sugr market hath been by the Combination of the Bakers a Little heavy

Foreign Sugr Even upon the Double Duty. I sold Some of Josiah Martins for

Bakers Determine As some of them threaten to Leave off Working. In this
Situation I think Early Sugr must Sell Well & I hope Capt Darroch who failed
this year of a Loading & went to ve Norward will Stand a good Chance (being
but a Small Vessell) of bringing the first Sugr to market.

This illustration is from a well-executed eighteenth-century (?) water-colour
drawing in my possession. The milestone under the tree has on it xxxi to
Kingston." Mr. F. Cundall, F.S.A., has kindly forwarded the following letter
about the identification of the view.
With regard to your water-colour drawing there is no doubt that it
represents a scene in Morant Bay. I have consulted several people on the subject,
and a resident writes as follows:-
'The picture, as far as I can make out and after consultation with local
authorities-among them Mr. Bancroft-must have been taken from behind the
residence now occupied by Mr. Bicknell, and known as Church Hill. The church
must be the old church at Church Corner,* although it is not represented as it
was. The Johnson River and White River appear in the distance. Mr. Hawkins
tells me that the old main road went past Williams' Retirement, and that altera-
tions in the route would account for the position of the milestone. Of course
you know that the old town of Morant Bay was at Church Corner, as represented
in the picture.' "
