Database of British Slave Owners
has compiled a database of British Slave Owners - people who sought financial compensation
from the Crown in 1883, after the Crown outlawed slavery in the Colonies. There
were about 46,000 claims made. Nearly 43,000 were from slave owners living on
plantations in the Caribbean. The rest of the claims were from
owners living in the UK.
