Jamaican Family Search Genealogy Research Library
These files have been very kindly supplied to me by Edward Crawford. The introductory remarks are written by him, and they give credit to the other transcribers who assisted him.
These pages contain frames, and will load slowly. Due to the size of the files there is no Search button on the individual pages.
The lists of manumissions do not identify parish or property on which the slave worked. In order to find this information I would suggest that you consult the 1820, 1822, 1824 and 1826 Almanacs found in the Members' section of this site. There you will find a list of property owners which you can match with the manumissions list. The property owners are listed alphabetically by parish. With this information you can determine exactly which volume of T71 contains a particular slave in the Slave Registers held at the Public Record Office in England. The parish information will also direct your search in the Jamaican Registers of baptisms, marriages and deaths.
