Notes

1. Three fellow servants who stole a boat together, being the best way to make an escape on the Chesapeake.

2. Mulatto's, in Maryland often show up as free men and as indented servants, possibly indicating a propensity toward some master/fathers of releasing their slave children from perpetual bondage. perhaps this is what gave Frederick Douglas his misplaced and unrealized hope that Mulattos such as he might bring about emancipation by being free men in being. Beginning around the time of George Washington's death [1799] states began siding with surviving relatives of a deceased master who had wished to free his slaves upon his death, whereas the surviving family wished to inherit these same slaves.

3. A person placed an ad for a nameless escaped servant. This reeks of intention to abduct a random undocumented poor person and take them into service by force. These entries will bear further investigation.
