Ghana and Sierra Leone in colonial and missionary records, 1700-1850

Papers of Thomas Perronet Thompson relating to Sierra Leone

You are here: Ghana and Sierra Leone in colonial and missionary records, 1700-1850 : Papers of Thomas Perronet Thompson relating to Sierra Leone

Born the son of a wealthy Hull banker, Thompson served in the army and navy until, partly through his connexion with William Wilberforce, the influential anti-slavery campaigner, he was appointed governor of the colony in Sierra Leone in 1808, the year following the abolition of the slave trade across the British Empire. However, Thompson's zeal in enforcing the new law appears to have contributed to the termination of this appointment.
