Manumission of Slaves, Jamaica, 1796-1829

These files were sent to me by Edward Crawford, who with the help of others transcribed and extracted these data from files at the PRO in London. The files are not in chronological order nor alphabetical order so need to be purused in their entirety to achieve the benefit of this major effort to preserve our heritage.

Preface and Manumissions pages 105-119

Manumissions pages 120-141

Manumisssions pages 142-153

Note: there are a few places where the date reads 1910's or 20's which you will recognize are typographical errors. These data pertain mainly to 1813-1825.
