There is lack of clarity at present about the transmission of ownership of the estate to Edward Barrett Moulton Barrett, whom the compensation records showed to be tenant-for-life under the will of 1798 of Edward Barrett. The estate was already shown in 1795 as in the possession of 'Edward Moulton Barrett' 'a minor', but Edward Barrett Moulton did not take the additional name Barrett until his grandfather was writing his will, and equally Cambridge was held by Edward Barrett at the time he made his will in 1798.
