Enslaved Africans Disembarked in Nottingham, Maryland Between 1751 and 1771

Among the nine ships was the "Charming Molly" and captained by James Beard. He purchased unnamed captives at Gorée and St Louis, Senegal and The Gambia. The ship began the journey January 2, 1762 and reached Nottingham August 25, 1762. Beard, crew, and his human cargo left with 223 people, 183 disembarked; meaning 40 souls were lost during the 235 days at sea.
