Cavendish Hall, Bermuda

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.
