Through our research, we have uncovered a number of lists of African American men and women who have lived and worked at St. Mary’s Manor both as slaves and freed laborers. We have compiled and transcribed a number of these lists. If you discover that one of your descendants is listed, please contact us so that we can be in touch.
Maryland Slave Statistics
This series of documents include lists compiled by former slave owners after the Civil War of the enslaved property that was lost during the conflict. This includes slaves who ran away, enlisted in the Union Army, or who were emancipated by the state in 1864. Two lists include African Americans that would have lived at St. Mary’s Manor: the first includes all of Dr. Brome’s slaves, and the second includes the enslaved property of his mother, Ann Ashcomb. Please note that our transcription and the transcription at the State Archives differ, since we have used additional information from other documents to further inform the names of the individuals.
