Discover how to find information about emigrants from Grand Duchy Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach in German local newspapers, church records and archives, and get ready to search for your own lost ancestors."--Back cover.

Without indentures : index to white slave children in colonial court records [Maryland and Virginia]

November 29, 2016
Phillips, Richard Hayes, author.
©2013
xxxiii, 283 pages, 4 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations, maps ; 22 cm
"In this groundbreaking work, Richard Hayes Phillips has collected the names of more than five thousand children kidnapped from Ireland, Scotland, England, and New England, and sold into slavery in Maryland and Virginia, c. 1660-1720. By English law dated 1659, it was lawful for justices of the peace to kidnap children found begging or vagrant and ship them to the plantations as servants without indentures. The younger the child, the longer the sentence, and the colonial county courts were the judges of their ages. These five thousand names, culled from the Court Order Books, some of which have not been examined for centuries, have now been compiled into one genealogical index. In almost every case the entries provide the name of the child, the name of the owner, the date they appeared in court, and the age assigned by the judges, many of whom owned the very children they were sentencing to servitude. For ease of use, the volume contains an index to the ships--and their captains--that imported these kidnapped children, as well as a surname index to guide the researcher to alternate or incorrect spellings as found in the Court Order Books. The Introduction to Mr. Phillips?s book describes the history and conditions of white servitude in colonial Maryland and Virginia, along with an annotated list of the sources he consulte"--The publisher.
