History

Shillingford Estates Ltd. makes rum from fresh sugar cane juice.


River Estate: An estate adjacent to Canefield on the west of the island once totalling some 233 acres. It produced sugar, rum, and later limes and had one of the last big water - powered crushing wheels in operation. For this water was channelled by canal from Boeri River. In 1872 it was worked by 81 slaves and produced 97,500 pounds of sugar, 920 gallons of rum and 3,600 gallons of molasses. The estate was owned by John W. Myler in the 19th century, and from the early 20th century by A.C. Shillingford. In recent years large portions of the estate has been subdivided and sold as housing lots, while the old factory site was occupied by Marinor Enterprises.


Shillingford: A family widespread in Dominica, which has its origins among the 18th century English settlers. There are several places in England named Shillingford. The family arrived here in the 1780s and opened a blacksmith's shop in Newtown, their names appear in certain documents of the time, but they rose to prominence in the 1860s. One, Thomas, bought Peru Temps Estate near Geneva, Grand Bay; the others expanded their property near the Newtown Savannah. Each had several children who were prolific in their relationships and their resultant offspring were widely distributed around the island. One example is that of Thomas Howard Shillingford who invested in shops in each village along the west coast from Layou to Dublanc. Each one was run by a woman with whom he had children, which he duly supported and to whom he bequeathed his properties. The female Shillingfords married into other influential families such as Royer, Garraway, Rawle, Boyd, Trotter, Green, Alleyne and Winston, thus spreading the Shillingfords influence even further. By the 1930s the network of Shillingfords, headed by those such as H.D, A.C.S, had virtually controlled every aspect of Dominican society, from the membership of the legislature, to land holding, the import of trade in food and other merchandise and the export of trade in cassava farine, arrowroot, cocoa and coffee and agro-industry in the production of rum, lime juice, other citrus fruit and bay rum. Although this powerful influence began to decline from the 1960s, with the rise of the Lebanese and political change, this name was spread across the land and is still identified around the Caribbean as " a Dominican Name ". All generations of the family were in the forefront of sports: representing Dominica, particularly in cricket, led by Hughes, Stafford, and Ivan followed in the 1970s by Grayson and Irvin.
