Notes

Initially owned in 1643 by Richard Rowbotham and Philip Leeke by 1674-1684 the plantation was in the hands of the Clutterbuck family. By 1702 was owned by Robert Harrison and then (under his will of 1702) by his sons Robert, Thomas, Edward and Josiah Harrison. Robert Harrison was the owner in 1760. By 1804 it seems to have been owned by Charles Kyde (or Kyd) until at least, 1816.
