Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh

No Dates


Archibald Kerr in 1749 left an estate in Jamaica to the Royal Infirmary, which the Infirmary managers leased to James Trecothick ne Ivers (q.v.) in 1801 for 35 years. In 1806 the Infirmary petitioned to be allowed to sell the estate (identified there as Red Hill Pen and described as largely pasture land at the time but with some 50 enslaved people in 1817 and beyond) to Trecothick for £7000.
