James May sentenced 9/11/1771, transported via JUSTITIA
to America. Searching for where passengers were discharge
and sold into indentured servitude. Know this ship in Annapolis late 1770, and early 1774 Leedstown, but cannot find it between these dates. Any info appreciated.

Have you tried the LDS Library? They will send you a photo-copy of the info you are looking for. You have to know what your source of info is. Example: The name of the book where you found your ancestor. There is a book The Complete Book of Emigrants in Bondage 1614-1775

Hi,
My name is Elleyn, James was my 5TIMESGREAT-GRANDFATHER SO I HAVE ALSO BEEN RESEARCHING HIM I FOUND THE ATTACHED FILES
Virginia Gazette, Purdie and Dixon, February 27, 1772, page 3,
I feel this has to be the load of prisoners that JAMES was on, since the Old Bailey Court record places him on the Justitia in January of 1772 and the article states the ship had been at sea 40 days and arrived sometime around Feb 26th 1772! I am still searching for a list from this trip, have not located it yet.

Please go to James Harvey May in Megan's Family tree, this is a tree I have been working on for my family with my daughter as the home person. I found an article on the net from the Va gazette 1772 announcing the Justitia arriving in port in Leedstown. It is attached to James Harvey May, the same paper had an announcement of the sale of the contents of the ship, but did not list the names.
I'm attaching to this message.

Check out the name of the book below.
I found the book in my local library.

The book gives the names of the passengers, name of ship, and where they were transported from in England, month and year of arrival, and name of the Captain of the Justitia for the ancestor I was researching, William Westbrook.
The date at the top of the page is 1718 - 1776.

William Westbrook was transported from London to Virginia by the Justitia, Capt. Neil Gillis, in January 1772. (PRO: T1/483/47). On the same ship were men from Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent and London.
