An estate 'in Rendezvous Bay' was left by William Henry Doig of Antigua and Cookstown N.B. [sic] in his will proved in 1768 to his daughter Ann for life, then to his brother John and his heirs, then to the son of his brother James. The estate appears to have been the Rendezvous estate owned by William Henry Doig of Antigua and Cookstown's great-nephew John Hurst Doig, although if it was the same estate it was substantially smaller by the 1820s with some 40 enslaved people on it against 207 when Ann Doig, the daughter of William Henry Doig of Antigua and Cookstown, conveyed the estate in 1784.
