This document is a record of the accounts of the sugar plantation belonging to Samuel Martin. The Martin family, who were originally from Ireland, emigrated to Antigua in the mid 17th century, and became one of the leading families on the island. Their plantation was quite considerable, consisting of 605 acres of land, 400 of which were planted with sugar cane. This document records sugar production figures for the years 1756 to 1767, and also includes the quantities of rum that were manufactured on the estate.
