James Potter Lockhart had contracted to buy Great Capuchin estate and the enslaved people on it for £4000 in 1819, according to the will of the vendor Robert Seaman of Hounslow. Lockhart appears to have sold on the estate and a smaller number of the enslaved people: the destination of the others is not yet known.
