This chapter examines Zachary Macaulay's experiences in Sierra Leone. It provides background information about Macaulay's early life, family and education, and describes his work as a ‘bookkeeper’ in Jamaica, where he was responsible for squeezing every ounce of labour possible from the slaves on the estate by coercion and punishment. The chapter also highlights the influence of Rothley Temple on Macaulay's views about slavery and his appointment as assistant governor in Sierra Leone in 1792.
