Notes

1. These three men obviously took a boat together. To outdistance pursuit on the bay in a small boat a runaway had to have mates to row and tend the sail and rudder.

2. Unidentified runaways are not matching up with stolen goods and other runaways and this listing is beginning to sound more like an excuse to go kidnap someone. I must check the original clipping.

3. Mulattos were a class of people who might be consigned as chattel for life, bought for terms of service, or even freed. Free mulattos would win court cases in Maryland and own slaves in the Deep South.

4. It is more likely that John and Mary Jackson were brother and sister, though they may be father and daughter, son and mother or husband and wife. Children were often “bonded out” by the mother when a father died, and by the relatives when mother and father had passed.
