The dates listed below have different categories as denoted by the letters in the brackets following each date. Here is a key to explain those letter codes:

  • EA - Earliest Known Association
  • ED - Association End Date
  • EY - Association End Year
  • LA - Latest Known Association
- 1786 [LA] → Owner

In his will proved in 1786 Thomas Nassau Senior indicated he owned two estates known as Baldricks and Pool's in Barbados

1804 [EA] - 1804 [LA] → Owner

This is speculative on LBS' part. John R. Senior was shown as the owner of 57 enslaved people on an unnamed estate in an unnamed parish [probably St Andrew] in Barbados in 1804; his father Thomas Nassau Senior is known to have owned an estate named Pools in St Joseph and St Andrew; and the number of people on Pool estate in St Andrew in the 1817-26 Slave Registers was broadly consistent with the 1804 entry.

1823 [EA] - 1826 [LA] → Owner


This property might have earlier belonged to the Senior family: Thomas Nassua Senior and his son Rev. John Raven Senior (each of whom q.v.)
