Example text

For example, those on board HMS Mosquito which had captured three vessels claimed £4,945 in 1818. The three captured and condemned vessels had carried 290 slaves. How many of the Africans had died before the ‘cargo’ was freed is not known. Nor do we know about the fee charged by the ‘prize agents’ who normally submitted such claims to governments. When the captured vessel was sold, half went to the Crown and the rest to its captors. Thus the exercise could become quite lucrative, even if one was serving on the Slave Coast (Lloyd 1949: 80).

If the men, women and children were freed they were landed in Sierra Leone, a British colony, and ‘apprenticed’ to the residents there (Goddard 1925: 31–32). 5 They saw themselves as superior to the native peoples and attempted to ‘apprentice’ some of them to grow food for them. This notion of ‘apprenticeship’ was British: the Emancipation Act of 1833 had decreed a long ‘apprenticeship’ period during which the ‘freed’ slaves would have to continue working without pay in order to learn the skills they had been practising for years!
