No Dates


Original grantee of Rockley Vale under St Andrew nos. 2 & 3 in Tobago; Present Possessor 'Sold in various lots to Settlers': it does not appear in the 1832 or 1862 lists. Probably also the 'A.Scott' awarded Lucy Vale (with R. Douglas) under St John no. 29 in Tobago; Present Possessor Mrs Junis [sic]. Lucy Vale does not appear in the 1832 or 1862 lists but does appear in the compensation process, when the claimant was Sir Samuel Stirling but the compensation was paid to the Inness family as mortgagees.
