  • "Political Geography": "Discovery Bay, formerly called Dry Harbour".

  • Since Kingston is the principal port of Jamaica, and called Port Royall in 1774, it presumed that it was what was described as "Port of Jamaica". This may not be correct.

  • Additional detail is needed for both of these actions. No data has been found for either action other than on RevWar75 and similar listings.
