£3,674 13S 1D
This is a tentative association. No estate called Belle Vue has been found in the Slave Registers; conversely no estate called Stoney Hill has been found in the compensation records. Each was associated in the respective sources with Samuel Warner was owner, and both had approximately the same number of enslaved people. Support for the identification of these as referring to the same single estate is provided by the appearance of 'Belle Vue/Stoney Hill' as a composite name in e.g. Appendix V, 'Historic estates within the BPW and adjacent areas', in Kevel C. Lindsay and Jean-Pierre Bacle, Ecological Characterisation of the Body Ponds Watershed, Antigua , [accessed 15/04/2016], which refers also to historic map codes in Plantations of Antigua by Agnes Meeker, 2007.


No estate called Stoney Hill on Antigua has ben found in the compensation records: but Samuel Warner claimed and was awarded the compensation for Belle Vue, with approximately the same number of people as registered for Stoney Hill. Belle Vue does not appear in the Slave Registers. It therefore appears that the estate changed its name between 1832 and 1834 or was mis-described in 1834.
