Notes

In 1650 John Parris of Barbados, merchant, bought 247 acres in St. Andrew and established a plantation called Broomehall. In 1663 Thomas Parris sold 3 plantations, including Broomehall, formerly the property of John Parris, deceased, to George Gospright who then sold them to John Sparke and John Bawden. The latter appears to have owned Broomehall (and possibly the others) in 1680. In 1694 the Hon. Nathaniel Blackiston of St. Andrew and Dame Thomasina Blackiston, his wife (and formerly the widow of Sir Timothy Thornhill deceased) leased 250 acres in St Andrew to Reynold Alleyne of St. Peter for £500 sterling per year for 9 years. By 1722 [will ;roved 1730] John Alleyne bequeathed the plantation to his son, John Gay Alleyne. In 1754, Bawden’s plantation of 350 acres was leased to Henry Bishop. [It is not clear for how long Henry Bishop, or his family, leased the plantation.]

The plantation remained in the Alleyne family until c.1896.
