Estate Information (7)

What is this?

[Number of enslaved people] 80(Tot) 44(F) 36(M)  

Return of William Williams, his own property. Note that Williams does not otherwise appear as an owner (or other associate) of Rowans. But his return in 1817 clearly states his ownership. There is a little overlap of enslaved names between 1817 and the Register return for 1823. [But NB that the 1823 return listed only increases/decreases - not the full list of enslaved.]
