The enslaved people were moved or merged with those on the Murray [later Belmont] estate between 1821 and 1824. In the 1824 return, T71/248 a note on p. 206 says of the previous return '199 returned by Meade Home Daniell proprietor in two separate returns, one being for 'Murray' and the other for 'Windy Hill', but the whole at present being attached to the former estate, now called Belmont are included in this.'

The 1817 register, in which Robert McNish senior registered 64 enslaved people as attorney of Rev. Dr Alexander Brodie, carried no estate name, but the father of Rev. Dr Alexander Brodie was Alexander Brodie 'of Windy Hill' and the link has been confirmed by the presence of the enslaved man John Carter born c. 1805/6 in the list in 1817 and again in the 1821 return.
