Orange Grove Estate, consisting at the time of over 4000 acres was the last estate to be consolidated into Caroni. The machinery at the factory would be found to be obsolete and derelict, but some assets would still be transferred to Brechin Castle.

The estate was at one time owned by William Burnley, one of the most powerful planters and political figures in Trinidad. Burnley was a lobbyist for the Plantocracy, owner of multiple estates, and responsible for orchestrating Indian Indentureship to the island.

In his account of this estate, Historian Anthony de Verteuil commented on D’Andrade Portuguese Rum Shop being a prominent establishment on the outskirts of the estate many decades ago.
