Summary of Slavery Advertisements Published March 19-25, 1767

These tables indicate how many advertisements for slaves appeared in colonial American newspapers during the week of March 19-25, 1767.  The data has been compiled based on research conducted by Shannon Holleran.

Note:  These tables are as comprehensive as currently digitized sources permit, but they may not be an exhaustive account.  They includes all newspapers that have been digitized and made available via Accessible Archives, Colonial Williamsburg’s Digital Library, and Readex’s America’s Historical Newspapers.  There are several reasons some newspapers may not have been consulted:

  • Issues that are no longer extant;
  • Issues that are extant but have not yet been digitized (including the Pennsylvania Journal); and
  • Newspapers published in a language other than English (including the Wochentliche Philadelphische Staatsbote).
