Kathleen Mary Butler, The Economics of Emancipation: Jamaica and Barbados 1823-1843 (Chapel Hill and London, University of North Carolina Press, 1995) p. 82: Bezsin King Reece bought the estate in 1838 [sic], for £7,800.  It carried mortgages of £14,685 from Thomas and John Daniel, but 'because these ranked 5th and 7th amongst the liens against the estate, the partners recovered only 31% of their claim.'
