[Number of enslaved people] 94(Tot)  
[Name] Quintynes Plantation  

Return of Benjamin Elkin of Slaves belonging to Quintynes Plantation which Slaves by the Return of Walter Jacob Levi in the year 1823 are improperly stated to be the joint property of himself and of the said Benjamin Elkin who were only Trustees for Isaac Levi and Solomon Jacob Levi in as much as they purchased the said Plantation and Slaves under a Decree of the Court of Chancery for and as the Agents of Isaac Levi and Solomon Jacob Levi though they took the Conveyance to themselves absolutely and in their own names but which Plantation and Slaves by a Declaration of Trust and Conveyance executed in the month of October 1824 by the said Walter Jacob Levi and Benjamin Elkin are transferred to the said Isaac Levi and Solomon Jacob Levi. The said Walter Jacob Levi not being in the Island in the year 1826 and the said Benjamin Elkin having omitted to Return these Slaves during that year he petitioned the Governor and Council to be permitted to make a Return of the said Slaves for the purpose of correcting the said Return made by the said Walter Jacob Levi and of shewing the property of the said Isaac Levi and Solomon Jacob Levi in the said Slaves the prayer of which petition being granted the said Benj. Elkin is thereby enabled to make the present Return.

The previous return had shown 90 enslaved. 90 conveyed to Isaac Levi and Solomon Levi.

The above Return was followed by one from Abraham Brandon, Attorney to Isaac and Solomon Levi. Brandon also petitioned successful the Governor and Council to make the Return. Apart from births and deaths the net return showed the conveyance to Isaac and Solomon Levi and was for 94 enslaved. See T71/538, pp. 337-39
