For a general introduction to the topic of Devon’s link with slavery, see three papers produced by Lucy MacKeith:
Her 2003 booklet ‘Local Black History: A Beginning in Devon’
Her paper ‘Unravelling Devon Involvement in Slave-ownership‘, presented at the 2015 UCL workshop
Jill Allen’s paper ‘A Typology of Devon Slave-owners’ was published in the Transactions of the Devonshire Association, Vol. 154, pp. 36-60, 2022.
We are not the only people researching Devon’s connection with transatlantic slavery. Local historian Todd Gray gives talks and has published works on this theme. His work may also be found online.
