Current Status

There is no longer a mill at this site and in fact, very little information exists about this estate. We do know that herds of cattle and ground provisions were raised.

Harry Harding’s is now included in Mill Reef at the entrance to Nonsuch Harbour. Norris F. Mendes was a Signalman in the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, World War II. Deceased 19th October, 1998.

Enslaved People’s History

Based on contemporary research, we have little information to share about the enslaved peoples from this plantation at this time. We only know that the estate contained 148 enslaved people in 1829, right before slavery was abolished in the Caribbean. However, we will continue our quest for more information about these vital individuals.
