They were marched to coastal prisons, sold, and packed aboard ships for the notorious Middle Passage across the Atlantic.

In 1700, about 20,000 slaves, half of them born in Africa, lived in the region, making up one-sixth of the population. Few servants were now coming from Britain. Free African-Virginians were now rare, and, as was the case for Anthony Johnson’s descendants, these sometimes dropped out of surviving records altogether.
