Abstract:
A collection of manuscript deeds, wills, leases, letters, and other legal and financial documents concerning eighteenth- and nineteenth-century estates and plantations on fourteen islands in the British West Indies: Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Carriacou, Haiti, Jamaica, Nevis, New Providence, Saint Christopher (Saint Kitts), Saint Vincent, Tobago, Tortola, and Trinidad. Prominent among the landowners represented in the collection are Clotworthy Upton, Lord Templetown, who owned estates on Grenada, and Christopher Bethell Codrington of Clare Hall on Antigua. Several of the documents in the collection include references to, or contain schedules of, slaves on the estates. Most of the manuscripts are listed in Volumes II and III of Caribbeana (London: Mitchell Hughes and Clark, 1910-1919), and have printed descriptions clipped from a sales catalogue attached to their versos.
