Observations

The Age of the person manuminized cannot be stated, as it is never specified in any deed of Manumission.

The Bond which had been previously required from persons manuminizing Slaves to the Churchwardens of the Parish in the penalty of 100, as a security against such Slave becoming chargeable to the parish as a pauper, is rendered unnecessary by the 7th Section of an Act entitled "An act for the removing of impediments to the manumission of Slaves by Owners having only a limited interest" passed the 18th December 1824 which enacts -"Whereas it is now required by law, in all cases of manumission by deed, that a Bond should be given to the Churchwardens of the parish for payment of an annuity of 5 for the maintenance of any slave intended to be manuminised, and such bond is in many cases unnecessary. Be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid That it shall not be necessary to give such a bond to the churchwardens, provided that in lieu thereof the Slave, intended to be manuminised, shall be produced to the magistrates and Vestry of the Parish where such Slave shall reside, or it shall be otherwise sheown to their satisfaction that the manumission is not given for the purpose of relieving the Owner from the obligation of maintaining an Aged or infirm Slave, a certificate thereof shall be given by the Vestry, and shall be annexed to, and entered in the Secretary's Office with the Deed of Manumission."

Every Deed received in the Secretary's Office requires a 5/- Stamp, and the Office receipt a further stamp of 2/6. The fee for recording all deeds, whether manumissions or otherwise, is established by law at 2/6 a sheet (consisting of 160 words), and of course the charge for recording Manumissions is regulated by the number of words the Instrument contains
