*Note from Mrs. E.S. Capstick the genealogist in Jamaica who copied this well in February, 1972:  “It may be of interest that in a list of taxable properties in our possession, dated 1922, Williamsfield, in Hanover, contains about 230 acres, is valued at just over L600 and was used for a ‘grazing’pen i.e. cattle.”
