William and Philippa Thorpe Holder (1777) and William Thorpe Holder's sons William Philip Holder (1788) and John Hooper Holder (1798) are shown as associated with Fisherpond 'St Thomas, St Joseph, and St George' on the Creole Links website. These connections have not yet been confirmed by LBS but are consistent with the hypothesis that Fisherpond had belonged to Daniel Hooper and then to Daniel Hooper's son Reynold Hooper and then his widow Harbin Hooper (later Estwicke, later Rycroft). The same site also shows Thomas Yard as owner for 1817, which is not consistent with the Slave Register in 1817 for Fisher's Pond.

In his will made in 1750 and proved in 1752, Marmaduke Rawdon left his claim on Fisher Pond, sold by his grandfather Thomas Rawdon, to his daughter Esther. The claim was for 'arrears', presumably of the purchase price, for which he said he had obtained a judgment.
