You are here: Slavery: supporters and abolitionists, 1675-1865 : Records from the Slavery Business, 1692-1849

Those who derived profit from slavery kept detailed records of how their businesses progressed. These records reveal the roles played by five different businesses that derived profits from slavery through plantation ownership and the transportation of slaves. The plantation records form the bulk of this grouping, encompassing the content of the 'Jamaica plantation records from the Dickinson papers, 1675-1849'; 'Records of the Jamaican Prospect Estate: plantation ledgers, 1785-1817'; and 'Material relating to the West Indies from the Senhouse papers, 1762-1831'. The notable exception to this pattern is the 'Log and journal of the Bristol ship, Black Prince, 1762-1764', these detailed records reveal both where slaves were boarded and details of slave trading which took place on-board the ship.
