Transatlantic Slavery and Slave Trading

(p.29) Chapter 2 Transatlantic Slavery and Slave Trading
Guide to the Records of Merseyside Maritime Museum, Volume 2

Liverpool University Press

This chapter presents the involvement of Liverpool in the slave trade. As the European port most involved in slaving during the eighteenth century, much of Liverpool’s prosperity was due to the trade, which meant that there was no part of the whole port of Liverpool that went untouched by slavery. This chapter outlines the role of the city and its citizens in the slave trade by offering a breakdown of slavery records in the form of registers and archives that detail Liverpool slaving vessels and its masters and owners. It also discusses the effects of abolition and Liverpool’s subsequent trade with West Africa and America.
