Pantrepant in Trelawny, Jamaica is a Welsh name meaning "house in the hollow" and the small Great House was substantially rebuilt in the 1990's

The Estate is on the Martha Brae river and was once part of John Tharp's holdings

The ground floor of the Great House was more-or-less retained but the concrete-nog upper floor had deteriorated so badly that it has been replaced with a non-original concrete block structure. The ground-floor verandah was also added.
Remains of a water wheel, the boiling house and the cattle mill are clearly visible from the public road which goes through the estate and cattle-yard to "dead-end" when it reaches the Cockpit Country proper.
Various papers, wills etc originally belonging to original owner, Henry Strudwick, are preserved among the Tharp Papers in Cambridge, England.These include documents dated 1770-1791 and relating to condition of and incumbrances on Pantre Pant estate when bought by John Tharp in 1790, such as Returns from estate from 1770; Inventories of slaves, stock, &c. in 1790; Writs and judgements v. Henry Strudwick, deceased; Counsel’s opinions on encumbrances on estate, 1790-1791; Accounts and letters. V.D. {36 items}
