What is this?

[Number of enslaved people] 238(Tot) 116(F) 122(M)  

Note that the total given in the original document is 258 rather than 238 even though the individual figures are those recorded here.

Figures from a list of whites and blacks in Christ Church, c.1758. The exact date of the list is not given; but internal evidence places it in or soon after 1758. The figures were given as 10 whites, and blacks as: men: 74; women: 78; boys: 48; girls: 38. [It is not clear why only 10 whites were given nor if the figure for blacks was comprehensive.]
