The Abingdon Estate Great House

Abingdon Estate Great House Was Founded in 1674 as a Fortified Sugar Plantation.

The fortification was required as The Spanish and The Pirates were plying the shores of Jamaica plundering as they went. The Great House and plantation yard sit high upon a hill facing the sea. During plantation times it was terraced to the sea in Sugar Cane. Along the walls there were cannons facing the bay at the ready – you can still see where the cannons were mounted.

On the grounds there is a 350-year-old Sugar Mill, missing only the working parts. The original structure is intact as is the lay of the land surrounding the plantation House, original walls, The ‘Great House’ that Andrew’s Grandmother constructed on 350-year-old rum cellar foundations, and more.

Andrew Marr, the present owner, and his family have been stewards of the property from the 1930s when Andrew’s grandparents acquired ownership upon their marriage. 

When Andrew tells the story of Abingdon Estate, including going back 600 years to the time of the original inhabitants, the past comes alive.
