|This is a passenger list of the Belisarius, one of the
ships that set sail from Britain in 1787, taking Black emigrants
to found the colony of Sierra Leone. Here we find Black women married
to White men, and White women married to Black men. A handful of White
women were seeking marriage. This list gives an indication of how
far Black people were integrated in British society at this date.
