I see that as well but in the original raw file it is only a tree. Unfortunatly the jpegs posted here on ATS do not show enough detail and that is
where the confusion is coming from.
On another note Ive did a bit of checking into the history of the estate where the pics were taken...
Quote from the "Ayrshire archives site"
"The Hamiltons were another Ayrshire family with slavery connections. Robert Hamilton owned three Jamaican estates: Pemberton Valley, Rozelle, and
Carcluie. In Ayrshire the family had property at Bourtreehill and Sundrum. In 1754 Robert acquired Rozelle estate, Ayr, and built a mansion house
there in 1760.
Pemberton Valley account book, 1818-43 [DC17/10]
The Hamilton of Rozelle papers, held at Ayrshire Archives, contain a number of references to the slave trade, daily life on the family's Jamaican
plantations, and the advent of the abolition of slavery."
Might be important might not. I will continue to dig a bit.
Thanks for everyones input, appreciated.
