In the will of his father, John Pogson of Woodside House, two estates on St Kitts both called Pogson's were entailed for his elder son John [of Rougham]. In John of Rougham's own will, he bequeathed (in trust) only one estate, then called Godwin. It is presumed this is the same estate as one of the two earlier Pogson's estates.
