Samuel Campbell and James Cassels, Loyalist Refugees

Samuel Campbell was granted title to a 20,000-acre tract that extended north from Trout River to the Nassau River . Campbell formed a partnership with Vernon Templetown, Lord Clifford , and established three settlements for the cultivation of indigo and sugar. Each settlement had dwelling houses and slave quarters as well as barns and other farm buildings. Indigo vats, a sugar mill and related works, and an orange grove were established at one of the settlements. Governor Tonyn concluded that not enough of the 20,000-acre tract had been developed by 1782, when he carved a 400-acre homestead for James Cassels , a refugee.
