These documents deal with the history of Amity Hall plantation, a sugar estate in Vere Parish, Jamaica. Most of the papers concern these properties when they were administered by Henry Goulburn between 1805 and 1856, when Goulburn died, though there are also documents relating to the late seventeenth- and eighteenth-centuries. The Goulburn papers provide a comprehensive guide to the operation of his Jamaican properties over a period which spans both the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade in 1807 and the subsequent Slavery Abolition Act of 1833, which led to the emancipation of all slaves across the British Empire, including the West Indies.
