£3,705 2S 7D


There were three estates named Belmont in the Slave Registers. Charles Shephard, from John Byres' 1776 Plan, showed Belmont as an extant estate against each of Lots No. 28 (95 acres, originally purchased by St Lawrence), No. 41 (39 acres, purchased by Coram), No. 81 (80 acres, purchased by Wilmot) and (as Belmont and Golden Vale) Lot No. 144 (471 acres, purchased by Byers). In addition, Belmont was shown among the lots leased to French settlers, against Lot No. 25 (135 acres leased to Michelle). The Belmont shown against Lot no. 144 was almost certainly that later owned by John Pemberton Ross. It is not yet clear how the other two Belmont estates in the Slave Registers relate to the early purchases.
