Photo of archesSPOTFIELD, later called Kinloss, was originally owned by John Campbell who also owned nearby Duanvale and, possibly,the area east of Kinloss still known as Campbells.
Higman, in Jamaica Surveyed, mentions a Thomas Munro, "the wealthiest of all the Jamaican surveyors,.." whose wealth "came to depend on his ownership of Kinloss Sugar Estate in Trelawny and the 187 slaves who toiled for him". Munro also owned a house in Martha Brae.
The Jamaica Almanac of 1840 lists this estate with 1499 acres and the owner as George Scott.
The arches are an interesting remnant of the Spotfield Works. (Writing now in June, 2002:- I SHOULD SAY WERE.. ALL THE FACE STONE WAS DEMOLISHED AND REMOVED BY SOMEBODY DURING SPRING,2002)
