Reconstructing the Black Past: Blacks in Britain c.1780-1830

by Dr Norma Myers - £37.99  Taylor & Francis Ltd (1996)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780714641300 | ISBN 10: 0714641308

This book examines the character and composition of the black population of Britain between 1780 and 1830, previous studies of which have been hampered by a lack of demographic evidence.
 
Drawing heavily from data collected from parish registers, contemporary newspapers and journals, parliamentary papers and the records of merchants involved in the slave trade, the author ventures beyond existing research to examine the age structure and sex ratios of the black population; family marriage patterns; and the occupations of black men and women.
