Thomas & Lydia ended up on Trinidad(1813-1825) and in possession of the St Clair Estate, Tragarate Quarter(not to be confused with the St Clair; Tacarigua & Arouca or the Sainte Claire; Aricagua estates). Thomas died in early 1825 causing Lydia to wind up the estate (with her son Thomas Henry's assistance) before returning to St Vincent and then finally, England where she died in Pembury, Kent Dec 1843.

Hi Ellie, ...and thank you for your interest and posts. The West Indies connection is quite interesting when you dig into the history. I am still not entirely clear as to how or why Thomas settled on St Vincent. He is variously described as being a Commissary in the army so I have always assumed that he found himself there as a result of General Abercrombie's expedition to quell the Second Carib uprising(1795) - this is entirely conjecture on my behalf though, as I have found it difficult to research the Army Commissariat records. At one stage I thought that there might have been a family connection to George Whitfield who was an established planter on the Island(based on William Whitfield's middle name which led me to wonder if his mother Sarah, might not have been a Whitfield).
