  2. Will of Anne Mary Sterling widow of St Thomas-in-the-East Jamaica [made in 1838] proved 04/12/1845. She left farm land and houses in and around Portsmouth Ohio to her daughter Anne Schroeter, wife of George Hutchinson Schroeter. She ordered her Jamaica property be sold and the proceeds divided between the Gore Bank in Canada under the management of James Matthew Whyte and a bank in New York under the management of John Pine. In a codicil of 1841, when she was in the Island of Jersey, she said the farm in Ohio has been sold and the proceeds invested by John Pine, formerly of Jamaica. She replaced John Pine and James Matthew Whyte as executors with Alexander Barclay of Jamaica (the third executor in the original will) and James Whyte Cater, formerly manager of the Colonial Bank in Jamaica but then of Liverpool, and John Gordon of Barbican St Andrew Jamaica.
