“He died amidst great applause” reads the epitaph for the original owner of #ColbeckCastle — one of the oldest, largest and most #mysterious#plantation houses in #Jamaica . Colonel John Colbeck's three-storey #mansion was built on land he received for serving in the #English invasion of Spanish Jamaica in 1655. This Italian villa inspired #castle is located in the center of a walled #military quadrangle with four outbuildings at the corners. Enslaved #Africans were housed in these buildings, reportedly in underground vaults. At Colonel Colbeck’s death in 1682, the round of applause was surely mixed between his fellow European military officers, planters, Assembly members and merchants, including the famous pirate/politician/slave owner Sir #HenryMorgan , and the enslaved Africans bought by Colbeck to live and labor in the confines of his #Caribbean Castle.
