In 1763, the Hon. Edward Pare of St. John, owner of Claybury, gave mortgage to the Hon. Samuel Rous of St. John for £8,700 secured on the plantation. The plantation straddled St. John, St. George and St. Joseph. By 1778 the capital and interest on this mortgage amounted to £9,403. Samuel Rous bought the plantation from Edward Pare for that sum. Rous immediately sold it to his son-in-law, the Hon. Cheeseman Moe for £11,000, with Moe giving the mortgage.
