- 1797 [EY] → Owner

John Wickham Mayer sold his estate, inferred to be Mayers, to Walter Colquhoun under a deed of June 1797, just before Mayer made his own will.


Harriet Colquhoun claimed apparently unsuccessfully for unpaid purchase money on the Mayer's estate, which her family had sold to Owen Pell c. 1819.

1788 [EA] - 1788 [LA] → Not known

Shown by Vere Langford Oliver against Mayer's in 1788, drawing on Luffman's 1787-1788 map. It seems more likely that the owner was at that point Joseph's older brother John Wickham Mayer.
