What is this?

[Name] Foulis  

In 1798 Foulis was shown as plantation no. 26 under the sub-heading 'De Mahaica a Demerarie', prorietaire Dr Munro, 500 carreaux [C]oton. This appears to correspond to the Foulis in Berbice know to have been owned by William Munro; however, a separate plantation Foulis in Demerara came to be owned by the Porter family who held other estates close by to the Foulis in Demerara in the 1798 list. It is conceivable that William Munro held estates of the same name in both Berbice and Demerara.
