Signed 07/12/1809.

Codicil from Frenchall, Madeira, dated 06/07/1811. Since my will of 1809 it has been represented to me that one of my plantations namely Silver Grove in Trelawny cannot be advantageously continued many years longer as a sugar estate and that the removal of the negroes thereon to my other plantations would be an improvement of my property, therefore I authorise the trustees and executors to remove the negroes and stock to my other plantations such as shall seem most expendient. The annuity to my wife be increased to £2,000 per annum.

Proved in London 05/10/1811 by Herbert Newton Jarrett Esquire and Richard Meyler Esquire.
