1. According to Kennedy, he received 784 acres at a cost of $1 per acre. This suggests that he probably couldn't afford to buy the whole island outright, so he bought the three best lots that he could afford.
The other two lots were eventually purchased as crown grants in 1909 by Louis Anderson (DL 1373) and his brother-in-law Bill Palmer (DL 1376).
