Polly Kemp and her children (Christopher, Stephen, John and Sarah) were emancipated in 1843 by Andrew Johnston, executor of Robert Johnston. The connection, if any, between the Johnstons and the Harrisons of Berkeley is unknown. The deed describes the grantor as "late of the City of Richmond," but at the time of the making of the deeds a resident of Adams County, Illinois. Polly is described in the deed of emancipation as POLLY BURGESS before her marriage to STEPHEN KEMP, a slave belonging to Isaac Davenport of the City of Richmond. The Inventory of Benjamin Harrison V, Signer of the Declaration of Independence lists two slaves by the name Polly Burges, so a connection to Berkeley seems apparent. Christopher Kemp is described in the deed as between fifteen and sixteen years old, not well grown, a dark mulato, one arm injured, with large front teeth. The deed further states that Christopher and his brother Stephen "appear to have been remarkably well brought up." Charles City County Deed Book 9, pp 314-16. Christopher Kemp was a member of the First African Baptist Church and was dismissed by letter 03 JUNE 1849, when he left the state.

Charles Lewis was one of three slaves convicted of conspiracy to make an insurrection 03 JUN 1861. Lewis was charged, along with another slave who also belongied to Dr. Richard Epps of City Point, and a slave from Shirley Plantation 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.

Thomas Mayo was a 14-year old Indian brought into court 08 DEC 1690 by John Evans to have his age determined. The law of 1682 made servants tithable when they reached a certain age and required masters to bring children between the ages of 4 and 18 into court to have their ages determined. During Bacon's war against the Indians and for a brief period thereafter it was lawful to enslave indians caught in hostile acts. Whether Thomas Mayo served for a term of years or was held in lifetime servitude is unknown.
