Black People and 'Mulattoes' Employed by
the Royal African Company


Free Africans as well as slaves worked for the British. As the entries towards the end of this list of Royal African Company personnel illustrate, Africans on the payroll of the RAC helped to maintain Royal African Company 'factories' (trading stations and forts) in Africa and sometimes acted as military back-up. The list also shows the range of skills possessed by RAC employees.
