By Richard Hayes Phillips. 2015. In this companion volume to “Without Indentures: Index to White Slave Children in Colonial Court Records,” Phillips takes the story forward–examining the treatment of children kidnapped and sold into slavery, and identifying those who survived. This book has indexed seventy-five years of handwritten records from Charles County, Maryland (1658-1733). The records are nearly complete and most have never been transcribed before–872 “servants” without indentures were brought to this county, and 333 were owned by the judges on the very court that sentenced them to slavery. Also included is an Encyclopedia of Survivors, which assembles all that is known about the lives of the children following their release from servitude. Many of these biographical sketches trace descendants for several generations, refer to acquisitions of land, and contain other details useful to genealogists. 413 pages. Indexed. Softcover. Good condition. Non-circulating library edition, with library ID markings. 5.5” x 8.5” x 1”. Duplicate in WPGS library.
