Black People in Lambeth’s 18th Century Parish Registers

Thursday 22nd October 2015

It can come as a surprise to dig into the archives and discover that there was already a small black community living in Lambeth in the 1700s. Jon Newman from Lambeth Archives shows how the evidence of local parish registers allows us to recover something of these people’s histories and to reveal a population of freed slaves, servants, runaways and the occasional African royal celebrity. Free, booking is essential.
