By His Excellency James Montgomorie Esq. Brigadier General, Commanding His Majesty's Troops in the Colonies of Essequebo and Demerary, Governor of the said Colonies, and President of all Courts and Colleges, &c. &c. &c.
Whereas by an Order in Council dated the 15th of August last, His Majesty, by and with the advice of his Privy Council, has been Pleased to Order and Direct as follows: -
The 15th of August 1805.
The King's most Excellent Majesty in Council.
It is this day Ordered by His Majesty with the Advice of His privy Council, that from and after the first day of December next, or upon the Publication of a Proclamation to that effect within each Colony, it shall not be lawful, except by special Licence as herein after mentioned, for any Slave or Slaves to be landed upon any of the Coasts. or imported or brought into any of the Ports, Harbours, Creeks or roads or within the Limits, Jurisdictions and Territories of any of the Settlements, Islands, Colonies or Plantations on the Continent of America, or in the West-Indies, which have been surrendered to His Majesty's Arms during the present War, until further order, up pain that all Slaves so Landed, Imported or brought contrary to the true intent and meaning of this Order, together with the Vessels bringing in the same, or from which the same shall be Landed, and their Cargoes shall become forfeited to His Majesty, His Heirs and Successors. But Whereas it may be expedient to permit the annual introduction of a limited number of Slaves, under due Regulations, for the purpose of supplying any waste that shall take place in the Population on particular Estates from extraordinary or unavoidable causes, and thereby of keeping up the Cultivation of the Lands already Cleared and Cultivated; - It is therefore ordered that any number of Slaves not exceeding three for every hundred of the whole number of Slaves in the said Settlement, Islands, Colonies and Plantations respectively, Returns of the number whereof shall be made from time to time, in pursuance of Instructions to be transmitted by one of His Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, may be Imported in each Year ( provided Casualties to that extent shall appear to have taken place in the preceeding [sic] Year) under Licences to be previously Granted by the Governor, Lieut: Governor, or Officer Administering the government of the said Settlements, Islands, Colonies and Plantations, from any other of His Majesty's Colonies in the west Indies into the said Settlements, Islands, Colonies and Plantations respectively, such Licence or a copy thereof to be produced by the Master of the Ship on which such Slaves are Landed, as his Authority for having Slaves on board, destined for the Settlements &c., as aforesaid: Provided always that until the first day of January 1807 such limited importation may be made from other Places than His Majesty's Colonies in the west Indies as aforesaid, and without it's being necessary for the master of the Vessel, if met with at Sea to produce the said Licence, or a copy thereof, as his Authority for having the said Slaves destined as aforesaid on board; but subject nevertheless to such Licence being first had and obtained as aforesaid, before any Slaves shall be Permitted to be landed or Sold from such Vessel in any of the said Settlements: And Whereas special Instructions will be immediately transmitted by one of His Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, to the Governors, Lieutenant Governors, or Officers Administering the Government of the said Colonies, Settlements and Plantations respectively, containing the Regulations proper for carrying this order into effectual Execution, directing and empowering them to grant Licences for the Importation of such Limited number of Slaves as aforesaid, subject to such Regulations as in the said Instructions will be provided. It is His Majesty's further order that such Governor, Lieutenant Governor, or other Officer as aforesaid, shall be, and they are hereby respectively Authorised and Empowered to grant such Licences upon such Terms and Conditions, and subject to such Regulations as in conformity to, and furtherance of the object of such Instructions may from time to time be required: and it is hereby further order that the Prohibition herein before contained shall not extend to prevent the Importing and Landing of any Slaves which shall be Imported into the said Colonies, Islands and Plantations by Licence first had for Importing the same under the hand and seal of His Majesty's Governor, Lieutenant Governor or Officer Administering the Government of the Colony, Settlement or Plantation into which such Slaves are to be Imported, specifying the Ship or Vessel permitted to Import the same in conformity with the Instructions to be received from one of His Majesty's principal Secretaries of State as aforesaid: But that all Slaves, except such Slaves as may form part of the Crew of any Vessel, or may be Household Servants to the Passengers therein, which shall be Landed without such Licence as aforesaid, and without conforming to such Regulations as shall be contained therein, shall, together with the Vessel bringing the same, or from which the same shall be Landed, and their Cargoes, become forfeited to His Majesty, His Heirs and Successors,
And in case any such Vessel shall contain more Slaves than the number Permitted to be Imported in such Vessel by any such Licence or Licences, such number of the most valuable Slaves on board such Vessel ( other than such Slaves as may form part of the Crew of such Vessel, or may be Household Servants to the Passengers therein ) as shall be equal to the excess beyond the number mentioned in such Licence or Licences, shall be forfeited to His Majesty, His Heirs and Successors, and shall be selected and disposed of in such manner as may be in that behalf directed by any instructions from one of His Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State to be given to the respective Governor, Lieutenant Governors or other Officer Administering the Government of such Colonies, Settlements and Plantations as aforesaid. And it is hereby further ordered and provided that nothing herein Contained shall be extended, or construed to extend, to the Landing, Importing or bringing in of any Slave or Slaves from or by any Vessel which, by stress of Weather or by any other peril, shall be driven on the Coast of any such Colony, Settlement or Plantation, or compelled to take refuge on such Coast, or within the Creeks or Harbours of such Colony, Settlement or Plantations; provided the Slave or Slaves which shall be so Imported, Landed or brought in as last aforesaid, shall be exported to some Place or Places other than any of the Colonies, Settlements or Plantations, to which this order applies, within ten days from the Importation, Landing or bringing in of the same unless further detained by stress of Weather, or provided the same shall within such ten days be sold under the special Licence of the Governor, Lieut: Governor or Officer Administering the Government of the Colony, Settlement or Plantation where such Slaves may be, to such Person or Persons as, under the circumstances of his, her or their case or cases ( which circumstance shall be inserted in such special Licence ) may at the date thereof be entitled to obtain a Licence or Licences to Import such number of Slaves as he, she or they, shall in and by such special Licence or Licences be permitted to Purchase: and the Right Honble: VISCOUNT CASTLEREAGH, one of His Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, shall give all necessary Directions therein accordingly.
And it is hereby further ordered and declared, that one third of every Forfeiture which shall accrue in consequence of this order to His Majesty, his Heirs and Successors, shall be granted to the Governor, Lieutenant Governor or Officer Administring [sic] the Government of the Colony; and one third to the Party who shall Inform and Prosecute for the same.
And it is hereby further ordered, that all sales of Slaves Imported after the Notice being Published to that effect by the Officer Administering the Government of the Colony, shall be made Publicly in the presence of some Officer of the Customs, and the Returns thereof shall be kept according to the Regulations which shall be Prescribed for that purpose, in pursuance of the Directions to be transmitted by VISCOUNT CASTLEREAGH, as abovementioned. And the Right Honble: The Lords Commissioners of His Majesty's Treasury are to give the necessary Directions herein accordingly.
AND Whereas His Majesty has also caused his Royal Commands to be signified that the said Order and the Regulations therein mentioned, should be carried into immediate execution in these Colonies;
I therefore, in conformity to the order in Council aforesaid and in compliance with the Instructions transmitted in furtherance of the object thereof, by His Majesty's Secretary of State for the Colonial Department, do issue this my Proclamation, thereby giving Public Notice, and directing respectively as follows, viz: -
1st: - The Import of Slaves for New Cultivation Prohibited.
That from and after the date of the Publication of this Proclamation, the Import of Slaves in these Colonies for the purpose of cultivating Lands not hitherto in cultivation, is absolutely Prohibited
2d: - The Importation allowed for supplying the waste in the existing stock, to be limited to 3 per Cent on the total number of Slaves in the Colony, and not to take place but upon Licence.
That the number of Slaves to be annually imported into the Colony for the purpose of supplying the waste which may take place in the existing stock, employed on Lands already in cultivation, shall in no year be suffered in the whole to exceed three for every hundred Slaves of every age and sex now in these Colonies; but that it is not intended in fixing this as the utmost limit to which importation shall, under any circumstances, take place, that any importation even within this limit, shall take place, except under special licence previously granted to that effect to such Planters as shall apply for the same; in which licence the number of Slaves to be brought in, shall be assigned and limited according to the rules herein after laid down.
3d: - The direct importation of Slaves from the Coast of Africa Prohibited from and after the 1st of January 1807.
That from and after the 1st of January 1807 no direct importation shall take place from the Coast of Africa into these Colonies; but that the supply of Slaves required and permitted is thereforward to be drawn from His Majesty's other Colonies in the West Indies which were not surrendered to His Majesty during the present War, and that the Vessels importing the same shall be required to have on board the Licence, or an attested Copy thereof, previously granted by the Governor, authorising such Importation
4th: - The direct import by all Vessels resorting with Slaves to the Colony permitted upon Licence 'till the 1st of January 1807.
That in order to relieve the Planters from the inconvenience which might arise from delay in obtaining licences and in forwarding the same to the Colonies from whence the supply is hereafter to be drawn as the authority for embarking the same, and also that Persons engaged in the export of Slaves from the Coast of Africa may have due Notice that they are not, after the period abovementioned, directly to resort to these Colonies, for the disposal of their Cargoes, it is permitted until the 1st of January 1807 that Slaves be brought in the proportion above described, either directly from Africa or circuitously to these colonies; but that no Slaves thus brought shall be permitted to be landed or sold, except in conformity to licences first had and obtained as aforesaid from the Governor to that effect.
5th: - Returns to be made by all Persons of the Slaves they Possess.
It is directed in conformity to the Instructions transmitted as before mentioned, that all Persons possessing any Slave or Slaves, shall on or before the 31st day of January 1806 return into the King's Receiver's Office in Demerary, and on or before the last day of February 1806, in the Secretary's Office on Fort Island, Essequebo, being the Offices thereto respectively appointed by me, a list of all their Slaves properly authenticated by signature, classing them into Male or Female, Africans and Creoles, Children and Adults; - also that all Persons who may wish to obtain a Licence to Purchase or import Slaves in the ensuing year, must give in at the same time a return thereof, stating the number wanted, which last returns are so to be made in every subsequent year, before a day to be each time fixed by Public Notice from me or my successor in the Government for the time being; and also that all Persons Possessing any Slave or Slaves shall once in every Six Months, to commence from and after the 1st of January 1806, return into the said respective Offices, a list of the Births and Deaths, Sales and Purchases, and of the actual number of the Slaves on each Estate or Plantation, specifying, ( as far as may be ) their respective ages; all which returns shall be filed and preserved in the said Offices, and entries made therefrom in a Registry to be kept in the said Offices under the name of each respective Plantation or that of the Proprietor thereof, so that the increase or decrease in the number of Slaves on each Plantation in these Colonies of Essequebo and Demerary may be clearly seen in the said Registry; - If any wilful [sic] mistatements [sic] shall be made in the returns herein before required ( the accuracy of which I am enjoined to take every means in my power to ascertain ) every Planter making such wilful [sic] mistatement [sic], shall be deprived in future of the privilege of importing Slaves entirely.
6th: - Maximum of the Slaves allowed to be imported and Purchased upon Licence in 1806.
It being also His Majesty's Pleasure that Notice should be given as early as possible to the utmost number of Slaves to be admitted upon licence within the year, I do now, in consequence thereof and proceeding in this first Instance, on the best general Estimate I have been able to form, declare the number of 2000 Slaves to be the maximum beyond which Slaves shall not be introduced, either directly from Africa or circuitously, in these Colonies within the year ensuing commencing January 1806 provided nevertheless, that if it shall afterwards appear, upon the returns herein before required being made, that I have underrated the Population of these Colonies, that in such case, the same proportion on the actual number, and no more, will for that year be allowed to be introduced, of which, should the case be found to exist, subsequent Notice shall be given accordingly. - And I do also allow an additional number of 150 Slaves to be imported for the broken period of a year, intervening between the date of the present Proclamation and the 1st of January 1806.
7th: - Licences to be applied for by Petition to the Governor.
It being His Majesty's further Pleasure as aforesaid, that such limited importation of Slaves shall in not case be allowed to take place but upon licences previously had and obtained from the Governor or the Officer administering the Government for the time being, Public Notice is hereby given that any Planter who may wish to obtain a Licence to import Slaves, must present his application for that purpose by a Petition signed by him, wherein he is to state the particular causes, whether of scarcity, epidemic disease or casualty, by which the deficiency of his Slaves in the year preceding has been produced, and also to verify by a Certificate of the respective Officers appointed to keep the Registry aforesaid, the fact that such deficiency or decrease appears by comparison of the returns registered in their Office; and in order to prevent any application for importation of Slaves in consequence of a deficiency occasioned by ill treatment, neglect or over working, such Petitions are to be authenticated by a Certificate from the Medical Attendant of the Plantation, or the nearest Medical Person, according to a form to be had at the respective Offices, where the Registry is to be kept as before mentioned. - In respect of the broken period of a year, to intervene between the Publication of these Presents and the 1st of January 1806, it will be sufficient for those who wish to obtain such licences to annex to their Petitions for that purpose the Certificate of the Medical Attendant of the Estate it may concern
8th: - Deficiencies arising from the Sale of any Slaves belonging to any Estate, to be excluded from calculation of Waste –
As the limited annual importation of Slaves is allowed only for the purpose of supplying the waste which may take place in the existing stock employed on lands already in cultivation, therefore in order to guard against any new cultivation being attempted, upon Import being Prohibited, by Purchases of Slaves from other Estates within the Colony now in cultivation, it is expressly understood, and all Planters whom it may concern, are to take particular Notice, that deficiencies arising from the Sale of Slaves belonging to any Estate in cultivation, shall not only be excluded from the calculation of waste so intended to be replaced, but that licences to import will be absolutely refused to any old Planter, who shall be proved to have knowingly sold Slaves for the purpose of new cultivation, and that no licences will be granted for any waste that may take place on any Estate begun to be cultivated or enlarged by the clearing and opening of new Lands, Provision Grounds excepted, after the Publication of the present Proclamation.
9th: - Forms to be observed in regard of the Licences for Importing Slaves.
Those Planters who upon such application by Petition as aforesaid and after investigation made, if necessary, into the truth of the facts therein stated, shall obtain a Licence to Import or Purchase the number of Slaves prayed for by them, from any of His Majesty's Colonies in the West Indies, or on or before the 1st of January 1807, from any Vessels resorting with Slaves to the Colony, are in all cases to deposit the original Licences in the Office of the Collector of the Customs, and a Copy thereof certified by his signature, in the case of it's [sic] being intended to Import Slaves from His Majesty's other Colonies in the West Indies from and after the 1st of January 1807, to be transmitted by the Planter to his Correspondent or Agent Purchasing the Slaves in such other Colonies as aforesaid, and to be kept by the Master of the Vessel Importing the same, which certified copy of the Licence every Master carrying Slaves to the colony shall be bound to produce on his landing from and after the 1st of January 1807, and the Master of every Vessel bringing Slaves in consequence of such Licence is, before he breaks bulk, to give Notice to the Naval Officer or the Collector of the Customs, his or their Deputy or Deputies, with whom the Licence is or are deposited, of the number of Slaves he has on board, and of the Person or Persons to whom they are consigned, and if the Naval Officer or Collector of the Customs, his or their Deputy or Deputies, shall find such numbers not to exceed the numbers mentioned in the Licence or Licences, lodged as aforesaid in his or their custody, he is then to allow the Slaves to be landed.
And if any Vessel should contain more Slaves than the number mentioned in the Licence or Licences under which such Slaves were to be Imported, such number of the best and most valuable of the Slaves on board such Vessel as shall be equal to the excess beyond the number mentioned in such Licence or Licences aforesaid, shall be forfeited to His Majesty, His Heirs and Successors, and the Slaves so to be forfeited, shall be selected and chose out of the whole number of the Slaves on board such Vessel, by such Person as I shall then appoint for such purpose, who shall select and choose those whom he shall judge to be the best and most valuable among them, and to be employed or disposed of according to the Instructions given in this behalf by His Majesty.
A Copy of each licence is also to be sent to the respective Offices in Essequebo and Demerary respectively, where the Registry of Slaves is to be kept, in order that the numbers imported may be added to the last return of Slaves made by the Planters.
And all Slaves imported or attempted to be imported without such licence as aforesaid, shall together with the Vessels importing or attempting to import the same, or from which the same shall be landed, and their cargoes, be forfeited to His Majesty, His Heirs and Successors, and such Slaves to be dealt with in the same manner as herein before mentioned in respect of Slaves imported beyond the numbers contained in the licences as aforesaid.
10th: - Precautions to be observed respecting the Purchase of Slaves upon Licence in 1806
As His Majesty has been graciously Pleased to Permit Slaves in the proportion and to the amounts herein before mentioned and upon licences as aforesaid, to be bought for the year commencing the 1st of January 1806, and also for the broken period of a year, between the date hereof and the 1st of January next, from any Vessels resorting with slaves to these Colonies, it is hereby directed in order to secure to the different Planters, who shall have obtained licences to that effect, the benefit of Purchasing the slaves so to be imported, that all sales of Slaves during the said respective periods, shall be made Publicly, that is to say, on a stated day after due Advertisement by the seller, and in presence of some Officer of the Customs, and that none but the Planters of these Colonies or Persons by them specially authorised to buy on their behalf, shall be allowed to purchase at the said sales, and that every contract of sale shall be witnessed by the said Officer of the Customs and a note thereof, specifying the number of Slaves sold and the Plantation for which they are bought, shall be signed by the said Officer and the Purchaser and the said notes of purchase shall afterwards be by such Officer of the Customs transmitted to the said Registry, there to be entered under the names of the proper Plantations or of their Proprietors when the first returns shall be made as aforesaid. - And if any Slaves shall be sold during the said period contrary to these Regulations, the same shall be forfeited to His Majesty.
11th: - Masters of Vessels resorting with Slaves to the Colony till the 1st of January 1807, who sell or land any Slaves without regular entry to have their Vessels and Cargoes seized and confiscated.
It is also expressly notified by His Majesty's Command, that should any Master of a Ship or Vessel resorting with Slaves to this Colony from and after the date hereof untill the last day of December 1806 sell or permit any Slave to be landed from his ship without regular entry and licence previously granted by me, or my successor for the time being, to hat effect, that his Ship and Cargo including the Slaves on board, will be seized and confiscated: - and as all direct import of Slaves is Prohibited from and after the 1st of January 1807, I do also hereby notify by Command as aforesaid, that all Vessels with Slaves on board ( except such as come from some other of His Majesty's Colonies in the West Indies with due licences as aforesaid.) found hovering on the Coasts of these Colonies or entering the Rivers or Creeks belonging thereto, except from Stress of Weather, in which case they are to depart within the time prescribed in the Order in Council herein before inserted, will be seized and confiscated, together with their Cargoes.
12th: - The time fixed for applying for Licences for 1806.
All Planters who may be desirous of obtaining licences for purchasing Slaves, subject to the Regulations herein before established, for the broken part of a year, between the Publication of this Proclamation and the 1st of January next, are desired to apply to me by Petition authenticated as herein before directed, within the shortest space possible; - and those who may wish to obtain similar licences for the year 1806, are to apply in like manner on or before the 15th of January of that year. - The time of Petitioning for licences for the year of 1807, to be fixed and made known hereafter, when I shall be enabled from the half yearly returns herein before directed to be made, to declare the maximum of the Slaves allowed to be imported for that year; it being understood that in case the whole number for which licences are to be demanded upon deficiencies proved and established as above, shall in any year exceed the maximum as aforesaid, that then a rateable deduction is to be made from the number to which each Planter would otherwise be entitled.
And I do hereby in His Majesty's name require the Officers of the Customs and all other employed within this Government whom it may concern, to be aiding and assisting in carrying the foregoing Regulations into strict execution, according to the true intent and meaning thereof.
