The location would suggest a link with Carbery Pryse, who went to Barbados in 1666, although the documents post-date his death. The deeds record a mortgage by John Scott and William Frye, on behalf of Joseph Collins of St Davids, Jamaica,, 1695, a reconveyance by the mortgagee, Edward Parson, 1697, and the sale of the plantation by Joseph Collins,and Johana his wife to William Frye of Montserrat, 1698. The tenant was Major Thomas Lee.
