- 1778 [EY] → Owner

John Estridge of Brislington was shown with what appear to be two estates entirely in St John Capisterre on Samuel Baker's 1753 map: an estate just south of St John's Church, which he left to his son Benjamin and which was described in litigation in 1834 as Church or Lower; and an estate in the foothills of the mountains which LBS has inferred to have been Mountain or Bramble, left to Aretas Estridge. In addition, John Estridge was shown with an estate east of Mountain or Bramble that appears to span the parish boundary formed by St George's Gutt in Christ Church, which must have been the estate referred to as Hill in the Slave Registers.

1778 [EA] - → Tenant-in-tail or Remainderman

Aretas Estridge appears to have benefited from the reversion of the Lower estate after the death of his brother Benjamin, who possibly predeceased their father John Estridge of Brislington.
