Objective: The students will be able to relate how servitude evolved into slavery for people of color in 17th century Virginia. Virginia Standards of Learning: This activity addresses skills:. Directions for teachers: Using the information provided in the activity, allow students to investigate and discuss the evolution of servitude to slavery for people of African descent in 17th century Virginia. Activity: In , in Northampton County, Virginia, the clerk of the county court recorded that two county residents, Captain Philip Taylor, a white man, and Anthony, a black man, had walked a piece of ground together in which both had an interest.

The men agreed to divide the property, and Anthony told the clerk he was pleased with the agreement because, "I know myne owne ground and I will worke when I please and play when I please.

From the above account, we can document that some people of African descent were free in 17th century Virginia, and even owned land. But what social and economic status did Africans, who first arrived in Virginia in , and their descendants have throughout the 17th century in Virginia? Susan Myra Kingsbury, ed. They were brought to the colony by an English ship, the White Lion, sailing under a Dutch letter of marque that allowed the ship's crew to legally privateer Spanish and Portuguese ships.

Unfortunately, no documents have been found telling us more about these first Africans in Virginia, and scholars today debate their status: slave or indentured servants? All we can say with certainty is that these people were brought to Virginia against their will and made to work, either as servants or slaves.

A census or "muster" was taken in the colony between January 20 and February 7, , to determine the colony's population and other vital facts. There were 1, people, males and females 14 people unidentified , living in different "musters" or households grouped into 21 major plantations spread along the banks of the James River.

Each "muster" of a household listed the people living there, and among the 1, people "mustered" there were 23 Africans living in Virginia. Each household's residents were identified by name, age, and in some cases, on what ship they arrived in the colony and the year. However, for most Africans the information provided about them was much different than that provided for white residents. Below is one example of how most household musters recorded their white and black residents. Many historians cite the muster as evidence of racism in Virginia, but it is also noted that the black people are listed as "servants" and not slaves.

It is believed by many historians, based on the scanty evidence available, that up until mid-century some or most 17th century Virginia Africans and their descendants existed in a state of servitude that allowed them to somehow gain their freedom, as did white indentured servants upon completion of their indenture.

A prime example of this is Anthony Johnson and his wife, Mary. Of the seven Africans who were listed by name in the Muster, both Anthony and Mary can be found at the Bennett plantation see Question 3 above.

We do not know when Antonio, or Anthony, and Mary became man and wife; when he took his sir name, Johnson; nor much about him and Mary from to By he received acres of land in Northampton County on Virginia's Eastern Shore based on five "headrights". A headright was 50 acres of free land granted to anyone who paid for the passage of a person to Virginia; each person so transported earned their master an additional 50 acres of land.

This title of acres of land indicates Anthony and Mary were free persons in the colony. They had four children, two girls and two boys. Two major events in their lives intimate they were granted some of the same rights as free whites in Virginia.

First, in a major fire destroyed much of the Johnson's household, and local officials visited their devastated estate and agreed the Johnson family needed financial relief. This was provided when the Johnson's petitioned their county court and received a waiver of county taxes, called tithes, for Mary and their two daughters, for life. This was exceptional as only free white women received exemptions from paying county tithes.

The second event was a court case held in whereby Anthony sued a white neighbor, Robert Parker, over a black slave, John Casor. Casor claimed he entered Virginia as an indentured servant, and his contract had ended seven years ago making him a free man. Casor's claim was supported by Parker who convinced Anthony to release Casor to him to work on his farm. Anthony, on further reflection, sued Parker in county court for meddling with his slave.

The court ruled in favor of Johnson finding no evidence of Casor possessing an indenture and ordered Casor returned to Anthony Johnson to serve as a slave for life. Parker was further ordered to pay all court costs. Activity: Reviewing various 17th century court cases and statues passed by the General Assembly, the freely elected legislative branch of Virginia's colonial government, documentation exists to show how the legal status for people of color evolved into one of chattel slavery.

Using the timeline below, chart the decline of legal rights for Africans and their descendents through the end of the 17th century beginning in , and write a paragraph about the loss of those legal rights or discuss it with your classmates.

As the timeline above shows, the legal status for Africans and their descendents changed dramatically over time from possessing some legal rights to having virtually none at all. Box Yorktown , VA Explore This Park. Info Alerts Maps Calendar Reserve. Alerts In Effect Dismiss.

Explain your answers. Why do you think this was true? However, if you had been Anthony and Mary Johnson, or another free person of color in the colony, what would you have thought about the new laws limiting or taking away legal rights for Africans and their descendents that were being passed by the General Assembly meeting at Jamestown? What would you have done if you had been in the Johnson family? The Johnson family, including the two sons and their families, moved from Virginia to the colony of Maryland in the mids.

It is believed one reason they moved was to find more fertile soil, but do you think there may have been other reasons?

Notice the correlation between the numbers of black people in the colony to the restriction of their legal rights. Do you think there is a direct relationship between the two occurrences?

In , Virginia shipped 2, pounds of tobacco to England, and by the colony shipped 22,, pounds! The more tobacco a farmer produced, theoretically, the more money he could make, however, the average single farmer could only harvest about pounds of tobacco each year. To grow and harvest more tobacco required more people to labor in the tobacco fields.

Most of this labor was provided by white indentured servants, many coming from England, but by the third quarter of the 17th century white immigrants coming to Virginia began to decline. To whom did the Virginia planters turn to make up this labor shortage in the last decades of the 17th century? Refer to the Black population chart in the timeline. Why do you think black people were not indentured in the last half of the 17th century as white people had been? Do you think it was less expensive for a master to indenture a person for four to seven years; give that person their freedom providing them with clothes, tools and maybe a piece of land, or to enslave a person for life and their children as well?

Do you think racism and economics played roles in the enslavement of black people in colonial Virginia? Last updated: August 24, Contact the Park Mailing Address: P. Help us make your virtual visit as good as the real thing.

Order of the First Families of Virginia

Excerpt from the Introduction: The purpose of this volume has been to develop the descendants of the following groups: 1. Immigrants to Virginia, i. There are individuals who have been identified as qualifying in these groups. The descendants of each of the individuals are presented through three generations, bringing the history of the family of that individual through the seventeenth century. It is astonishing how the marriages of these three generations lead into the web of social life of Virginia of succeeding centuries, touching nearly all the well-known families.

Сьюзан отказывалась что-либо понимать. Она была абсолютно уверена, что не вводила такой команды - во всяком случае, намеренно. Подумала, что, может быть, спутала последовательность нажатия клавиш.

 Господи Боже мой, Сьюзан, с тобой все в порядке. Она встала на ноги и расправила платье. - Все обошлось. Сьюзан огляделась. Третий узел был пуст, свет шел от работающих мониторов.

Ровно год назад он разбил здесь себе голову. Сегодня годовщина. Беккер кивнул, плохо соображая, какая тут связь.

Что-нибудь, что можно было бы вычесть одно из другого. - Три минуты! - послышался крик.

 Сидите тихо, - приказал Фонтейн. Люди на экране вроде бы сидели в каком-то автобусе, а вокруг них повсюду тянулись провода. Включился звук, и послышался фоновой шум. - Установлена аудиосвязь.

 Сегодня годовщина Иуды Табу. У всех такие… - На ней майка с британским флагом и серьга в форме черепа в одном ухе. По выражению лица панка Беккер понял, что тот знает, о ком идет речь. Мелькнул лучик надежды.

Что-то другое. Предмет материализовался как бы ниоткуда, он вылетел из кабинки и ударил убийцу в грудь, из-за чего тот выстрелил раньше времени. Это была сумка Меган.
