      From being a very inconsiderable village 20 years ago, may be now classed among the largest towns in the Island, where there is a great deal of business done, and much more might be done was it a port of entry.  The harbour, defended by a reef, is capacious and safe, and capable of much improvement, the channel leading into it running about N.E. and S.W. making it very secure against the strong Norths, which prevail in the winter months.  One hundred square rigged vessels and fifty-one schooners and sloops have anchored and sailed from this harbour, in the last 12 months.
      The Church is a handsome building, and cost £10,000; the site, consisting of four lots of land, is a present from the deceased Edward Barrett, Esq. the organ was presented by John Tharpe, Esq.
      Water being at an inconvenient distance, on the 11th day of January 1801, £20,000 was subscribed in one hour, for the purpose of bringing it down in pipes from Martha-Brae river, to a reservoir to be built; a Body Corporate under the firm of the Falmouth Water Company, is constituted under an Act of the Legislature to conduct this business, and are empowered to tax those who take the benefit of this laudable undertaking.  By means of an Hydraulic Ram and Iron Pipes, the Town is now fully supplied with good and wholesome Water; a large Reservoir is now built in the middle of Water Square, from whence proceed Pipes to another Reservoir, where the Ships' Boats may go alongside of it and fill their casks.
      The Port, from the increase of buildings, is almost in the middle of the town, and should be removed to the extremity of the Point, the most commanding situation against an external enemy.
      13,295 hogsheads, 1229 tierces of Sugar, 6400 puncheons of Rum, besides other produce are shipped at the wharfs of this harbour.  Martha-Brae is an in-land village, pleasantly situated, but unhealthy in the wet seasons.  The Rock is a thriving little village, where there are several wharfs.
      There are 100 Sugar Estates, 128 Penns and other Settlements in this parish.  Taxes are paid for 27,636 Negroes, 17,619 head of Stock, and 256 Carriage Wheels.
