Map of Central America, c 1764 with St. Vincent highlighted

This map was drawn approximately 130 years before Bertie came to England. The small island of St. Vincent, where Bertie was born, has been highlighted here with a white border. At the time of Bertie’s employment, the Lascelles family owned plantations in nearby Barbados.
