From Graces Guide

c1813 R. W. Pickwood of St. Kitts ordered a steam engine from Richard Trevithick and he placed the order with Harveys of Hayle to make. Because of a dispute between the partners at Harveys (Blewett, Harvey and Vivian) the engine was eventually made by Hazledine and Rastrick but it was too late for shipment and was then sold to the Mint at Lima.
