We knew that Cornish people owned plantations and enslaved people in the Caribbean. Perhaps the best known of these is Rose Price, latterly of Trengwainton, who owned the well-known Worthy Park estate in Jamaica. He brought enslaved people back to Penzance as his servants, dressed in full livery. (BL/9/9)
