Ship Molly's Slave Roster

Image of the Slave Roster from the records of the Molly slave ship.  Maintained by the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, U.K.

From the Understanding Slavery Initiative website we learn:

This account book records details of enslaved Africans purchased at Bonny, in the Bight of Biafra, for voyage to the Caribbean. The ‘Molly’ set sail from Bristol in 1758 and was traded on the African coast in 1759.
