Christian, of Richmond, a native of Charles City, p.21. Christian stated that Bashop used to say that he remembered Gen. Washington well and that he was either Gen.

John Clark emancipated a number of his slaves under his will and made provision for others to be set free upon attaining the age of 21. In doing so Clark expressly observed that the laws of Virginia could make these emancipations difficult because it required every emancipated slave to leave the state within a year or risk being sold back into slavery. Emancipated slaves could petition the General Assembly for permission to stay, but such permission was rarely granted. Several of the slaves emancipated under Clark's will were sold back into slavery when they failed to leave the state. Clark emanicpated outright 5 slaves: Amy, Patty (Patsy), Betty, Frank alias Harrison, and Arthur. Peter Fountain was to be free after the death of Clark's wife. Seven children were to be set free on their 21st birthdays: Watt on 24 DEC 1842

Ware, Charles City Commissioner of Revenue, Auditor of Public Accounts: Runaway and Escaped Slaves, Receipts and Reports, 1863, Library of Virginia Archives. A few years earlier, this William Buck or the elder one was one of three slaves convicted of conspiracy to make an insurrection 03 JUN 1861. Buck was charged, along with two slaves belonging to Dr. Richard Epps, of conspiring "to rebel or make insurrection by conversing together about the Northern Army & their expectations of being set free & having arms put in their hands & their readyness to rebel against their masters." Thirty nine lashes was the sentence imposed on each slave. Charles City County Records, Library of Virginia Archives, Ended Causes, Box 33, BC#1044799. Edmund Ruffin wrote about this conspiracy in his diary on May 26th. Ruffin stated that the conspiracy involved slaves on both sides of the river and had been in progress for six to eight months. The conspirators allegedly made their plans under the cover of night meetings for pretended religious worship. At the time of the diary entry the responsible slaves had not been apprehended, but Ruffin wrote that slaves at Eppes Island and at Shirley were thought to be the most guilty.

Rev. Lott Cary was at one time among the best known figures in African American history. Accounts differ as to whether he was the first American missionary, the first African American missionary or the first African American missionary to volunteer to go abroad. Born a slave in 1783, Cary purchased his own freedom and sailed to Africa on the Brig Nautilus which arrived at Sierra Lione 08 MAR 1821. Cary was instrumental in founding the Colony of Liberia and would have served as the colony's vice-agent had he not been killed in 1828 in a gunpowder explosion. He established Providence Baptist Church in Monrovia and served the colony both as a teacher and as self-taught physician. Lott Cary was the son of Robert Cary, a free man, and a slave mother, possibly named Francis. Lott is listed in an inventory and appraisement of slaves belonging to Gideon Christian taken on 31 JAN 1797 and valued at 50 pounds. Charles Ctiy County Will Book No. 1, pp 393-394.
