Description

On May 18, 1836, Rev. Joseph Carbery SJ, the manager of the Jesuits' St. Inigoes plantation, wrote to the clerk of the levy court of St. Mary's County to request that he remove seventeen slaves from his tax burden. Many of the slaves mentioned appear in the 1831 tax assessment for St. Inigoes (see GSA70).

Carbery appears to have sold the surviving slaves to Stephen H. Gough, who had completed an MA at Georgetown in 1831.
