Description

In 1765, Fr. George Hunter SJ compiled a survey of the Jesuit missions in Maryland that accounted for 192 slaves. Missions listed include St. Inigoes, Newtown, Port Tobacco, Deer Creek, and Bohemia. Hunter recorded the annual income of each mission earned from slaves and tenants, and in each instance, the slaves generated more income than the tenants. Hunter did not list the slaves by name.
