His will was silent on his son John Hudson Guy III and on estates and the enslaved people in Jamaica, implying that the family property was entailed. The estate of Hudson Guy Esq, account of sugar and rum sold and delivered by John Patten and filed by Robert Dellap, was entered into the Accounts Produce for 1740-1741.
