Robert Jacklin in 1717

Posted: 3 Feb 2006 7:38PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Jacklin
In 1717 the freemen of New London, in a town meeting largely attended, voted to "utterly oppose and protest against Robert Jacklin, a negro, buying any land in the town, or being an inhabitant." (more on website)

I am not related to this family, just passing on this information, which comes from a webpage titled "Negro Slavery in Connecticut." The link for the site is listed below.
