Thanks for interesting post and possible treasure legend as there is some scope for a little digging.
Here is some references worth perhaps checking up on?

the following may be of interest. The following account Mauritius and Madagascar: journals of an eight years' residence in the diocese of Mauritius...By Vincent William Ryan page 120On our way out we called on Mr. Cauvin, who showed us his vanilla, pepper, nursery for cocoa-nuts, &c. Then we passed the Hodoul estate, formerly owned by the captain of a privateer. The place in which he built his ships; the rock near which he anchored inside a narrow pass; the remnants of his terraced constructions all up the hill-side; the fine trees near his mansion; flamboyant, cocoa, bread-fruit trees and others, all illustrated the short history told me of his deeds as a privateering captain, and then as an importer of slaves; and now, not withstanding the fertility of the soil, and the luxuriance of the vegetation of all sorts, desolation is stamped on the place, even in the next generation.
Perhaps his former property is worth checking out?
