Notes for Edward Peart:

Most of the Pearts who were listed in the Jamaica Almanacs as property owners in St. Elizabeth and Manchester up through 1839 were descendants of this man.They named some of their properties in Jamaica after the towns or counties in which their family lived in England, namely Newark, Nottingham, Butterwick, andLincoln.

 

The parish of Manchester was created out of parts of St. Elizabeth, Clarendon and Vere in 1814.Some of the properties that were once in St. Elizabeth (such as Spice Grove, Newarkand Nottingham) became parts of Manchester.Others that had been in Vere (for example Isle) also became a part of Manchester.Butterwick and Oatlands were just west of Isle, but may have originally been in St. Elizabeth.

1811-1815 proprietor of Isle in Vere, 50 to 55 slaves, 0 to 18 stock.

1822-1826 proprietor of Lincoln and Spice Grove with 48 to 92 slaves and up to 388 stock.

1824 executor of M. Withers in charge ofOatlands, a property of 430 acres. In later years Edward isshown as the proprietor.

 

In 1853 he resided at, and was buried at Hanbury, which is now a northeastern suburb of Mandeville.

 

From1811-1815 John Robinson was the proprietor of Spice Grove and Lincoln, with 180 to 191 slaves, and about 300 stock.In 1818 to 1820 the proprietor was 'estate of John Robinson.'It may be that John Robinson was related to Sarah Robinson, and that Edward Peart was not the owner in 1822-1826, but merely a property attorney.In 1828 the 'heirs of Robinson' became proprietors of Spice Grove and Lincoln, with 117 slaves and 263 stock.After that ownership seems to have passed to Peart Robinson, who was deceased by 1838, and to another Peart Robinson after that.††
