  7. ^ Burns was to be the bookkeeper for Charles Douglas who ran the Springbank estate for his brother, the Earl (?) of MURE. The estate was about 1.5 miles SSW of Port Antonio, Portland parish, on the NE coast of Jamaica. It may have been Springbank, but it is now Spring Bank Rd that leads to the ruins of the great house. It has been suggested that that was a position for a single man, and that he would live in rustic conditions, not likely to be living in the great house.
