I have come across a few references in my reading to a
few small black boys 'given' as presents to ladies as a page of sorts. Was there much slavery? England never really had a big slave population that I know of...did they have a slave trade with the U.S? (Colonies etc)
anyway, my real question is were there a few blacks around during regency times? And were they slaves?
