This is an inferred association only, based on size and Edward Huggins' ownership: no 'Old Manor' appears in the Slave Registers and no estate called Hendricksons appears in the compensation records


Hendrickson was inherited by Sarah Laurence nee Hendrickson c. 1807 from her brother John Hendrickson. Her husband Samuel Laurence of Nevis took over the management of the estate, reportedly selling it to John Hanley in 1812, whose successor Alexander Hanley gave it up to Laurence in 1823.
