This share was contested by the heirs of Seth Sothel, who sold their share to the Bertie brothers in 1694. The Lords Proprietors asserted that this share defaulted back to them upon Sothel's death, and they put this share in a trust managed by Thomas Amy, who later claimed that he had full ownership. In 1700, Thomas Amy gave this share to his daugther, Ann Amy, and her husband Nicholas Trott. In 1728 and 1729, the Crown gave consideration to all parties when they purchased Carolina.

*Since the 3rd Earl of Shaftesbury was sick most of his adult life, his share was managed by his brother, Maurice Ashley, until his death. Elizabeth Blake (above) also gave Maurice Ashley the authority to sign documents on behalf of her minor son, Joseph Blake, Jr. until he came of age.

**Because he was a mere infant when his father died, his mother quickly sold his share of Carolina to his uncle, Maurice Ashley. How long this infant actually owned the share is not known, but it is assumed to be a very short period of time in 1713.
