Census of slaves to be sold in 1838

This is the original list of slaves from the Jesuit plantations compiled in preparation for the sale in 1838. It lists the slaves by name according to plantation where they lived, identifies family groups, and records which ship (1, 2, or 3) they were shipped in. It also notes slaves who had run away, and those who had been "married off." A notation on the second page indicates that it was discovered by Fr. Joseph Zwinge (identified as "J.Z.") in Fr. Ashby's account book at Newtown.
