'Friendsfield or Belvidere' was originally granted under Barbados Bay (i.e. St George) nos. 3 & 4 (300 and 200 acres respectively) to Henry Fisher 20/05/1765; by 1773 the Present Proprietor for Lot no.3 was 'late M. Martindale' and for Lot no. 4 H. Fisher and J. Luke; 'Present Possessor [c. 1867] Heirs of Kitson.' In 1832 the Owner was J. Glanville; the estate was still in cultivation in 1832.

  1. Friendsfield [sic], Queens Bay division (i.e. St Paul parish) is reported by Quintanilla as having belonged to George Campbell, Alexander Bartlet and Roderick Williamson in 1773. This might be an error for Friendship, and refer to Queens Bay division (St Paul parish) Lots nos. 41 & 42, which were sold to Roderick Williamson 15/05/1771 and were shown under Campbell & Williamson in 1773.


  1. Mark Quintanilla, 'Mercantile connections in the Ceded Isles: the Alexander Bartlet & George Campbell Company', International Social Science Review 79.1 & 2 (2004), pp. 14-26; ibid p. 25 fn 44. The text gives 'Friendship' rather than 'Friendsfield'.
