The Plantation Slaves of Trinidad, 1783-1816: A Mathematical and Demographic Enquiryby A. Meredith John
Pub. Date: 01/01/1989
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This study of the slave population of Trinidad is based on the Trinidadian slave registrations of 1813, 1815, and 1816, when the Registrar of Slaves recorded information on 17,087 plantation slaves. The principal goal of the study is to draw plausible upper and lower bounds on the levels of plantation slave mortality and fertility in Trinidad in the early nineteenth century.
