Bellefield Plantation Tour
The Bellefield Great House and its Estate have the distinction of being one of the oldest sugar plantations in Jamaica. This lush tropical estate sits on 10 acres of land, and has been part of the Kerr-Jarrett family holdings for more than eleven generations.
The family history in Jamaica dates back to 1655, when a member of the Kerr clan, of Scotland, joined with Admiral Penn and General Venables as part of the British fleet that captured Jamaica from Spain. The Jarrett’s were patented lands by King George II as was customarily done to reward loyalty of service, to the Crown. The families eventually intermarried and created the Barnett Estates, where the Bellefield property is located. At the time, the Barnett Estate spanned some 60,000 acres which stretched from Montego Bay to Falmouth.
We invite your guests to tour our beautiful estate and take a step back in time into the life of an 18th century Jamaican planter and appreciate the grandeur and opulence of the "Great Era of the Jamaican Sugar Estate".
