This third book of William Manning looks back at experiences gained while living in Vere, and includes relevant information during important periods in the history of Jamaica. The Tate & Lyle Corporation of England, which owned The West Indies Sugar Company, operated two sugar making organizations in Jamaica; Frome in Westmoreland, and Monymusk in Vere, Clarendon. Vere was a major producer of cane sugar in Jamaica. The Monymusk group played a major part in the life of people who lived in the area and was an important contributor to social development programs. Vere flourished as long as sugar flourished. Extant to the economic development in Vere, was a unique system of education, where funds from an ancient charitable bequest, provided high school scholarships to a number of nine to eleven year old students, and vocational or technical scholarships to older students who did the Jamaica Local examinations. To be awarded a scholarship, the student was required to be born in Vere or have some family connection to the old parish, which included that part which was annexed to become part of Manchester.
