Captain Ingham's House, Bermuda
Captain Ingham's House, Bermuda

This was once the residence of Captain John Ingham and his family. He purchased Mary Prince for £57 Bermudian currency when she and her sisters were put up for auction in Hamilton. After a terrible beating from the Captain, Mary hid "under the steps of the piazza, in front of the house" (Prince 8). Below the house is the Pembroke Marsh, which may have been where the Captain's farmlands were situated. This residence is owned by the Bermuda National Trust and is currently let on a 99-year lease.

Richard Darrell purchased Cavendish Hall in 1797. He was Betsey Williams's uncle. Mary Prince's mother lived at his house after the slaves were divided. This is where Mary was hidden in a "hole in the rocks." The new section at the front of the house was added in later years by Richard Darrell's son, John Harvey Darrell. This photograph was taken in 1856 and is provided courtesy of the Bermuda Historical Society. In 1969, the home became a housing development.
