The interaction of Henry Hamilton's ownership of 276 enslaved people, in 1817 with the subsequent evolutions is unclear: he appears to have remained associated as owner of some 100 throughout this period. In the compensation records his award was shown as for 'Plymouth' but in his will he refers to the Mountain & Sulphur plantations.
