R.A. Barrett, The Barretts of Jamaica: The Family of Elizabeth Barrett Browning (Athlone, Continuum International Publishing Group, 2000) p. 102: shows James Graham-Clarke as the son of John Graham-Clarke and the brother-in-law of Edward Moulton-Barrett (and thus the uncle of Elizabeth Barrett Browning?). James Graham-Clarke wrote from Newcastle on Tyne, Northumberland, on 01/10/1838, to his nephew Sam Moulton-Barrett, about 'how 'Bamboo' is manag'd, and if that estate would let & for what annually'; 'my dear Sam, I want to employ you under the rose, for I sadly fear I am hardly dealt with in Jamaica'; 'I am advis'd to come out. Say if you think I could effect any benefit, equal to the risk I should run - if I do come out, where to land at, what to bring with me, & whether you could receive me at Cinnamon Hill'.

T71/1212: claim from James Graham Clarke, of Newcastle, and Joseph Lamb, as trustees and executors of John Graham Clarke.  

Kathleen Mary Butler, The economics of Emancipation: Jamaica and Barbados 1823-1843 (Chapel Hill and London, University of North Carolina Press, 1995) pp. 114-5: refers to Bamboo estate.
