  1. Will of Thomas Hotchkin of [Red Lyon Square] St Andrew Holborn proved 04/06/1717. In the will he made elaborate provision for Catherine Wood of Jamaica, who was then in England. He left legacies and left his real estates in England to the sons of John Hotchkin, and left his estates in Jamaica to his natural son Charles, then aged c. 18 months (the son of Catherine Wood), whom he acknowledged as his child. He alluded to the split of Jamaica property between himself and his brother John. It was clear from the will that he himself had been in Jamaica.
