Re: NAs listed on early census
In Response To: Re: NAs listed on early census ()

Note that the total slave population of Virginia was estimated at only 2,760 in 1682 and about 10,000 by 1699 [Morgan, Edmond, American Slavery-American Freedom, 422-3]. So the few hundred or so Indians who became slaves at this time were a significant proportion of the slave population. Some also became indentured servants. Indians were said to have made up about 10% of the slave population of the Carolinas about 1700.

See also my site where I have made note of Indians in the records whenever I have come across them:
