Subject

Slavery, Georgetown College, Jesuits--19th century history

Description

In 1847, an enslaved man called Charley and described as "our colored servant," received a payment of $3 in April and $2 in August due to the illness of his children. Charley is likely Charles Taylor who was enslaved by the college for a number of years. Taylor married Mary Ann Boarman, a free woman, at Holy Trinity Church in 1836 and had at least 7 children baptized at the church. At the time of this payment baptism records show that they had 4 children: Charles Francis, Theodore, Briget, and Mary Matilda.
