Censuses of Newtown's enslaved population for taxation, 1804-1831

Dublin Core

Title

Censuses of Newtown's enslaved population for taxation, 1804-1831

Subject

Slavery--Maryland; Slaves--Newtown; Slaves--Taxes; Slave records

Description

This item includes four slave tax assessments from 1804, 1813, 1821, and 1831. They list the names, ages, and scattered physical or health descriptions of the men, women, and children at the Jesuits' Newtown plantation in the early nineteenth century. Comparing these lists to the 1838 sale documents can help to determine who may have been sold off from Newtown before 1838, and who may not have been sold to Louisiana in 1838.
