Black history In Virginia
Also, the indentured servants, especially once freed, began to pose a threat
to the property-owning elite.
Also, servants moved on, forcing a need for
costly replacements; slaves, especially ones you could identify by skin
color, could not move on and become free competitors.
In 1640 three servants fled a Virginia plantation. Caught and returned to
their owner, one of the slaves was sentenced to "serve his said master
or his assigns for the time of his natural life." He was made a slave.
In 1662, Virginia decided
all children born in the colony to a slave mother would be enslaved. Slavery
was not only a life-long condition; now it could be passed, like skin color,
from generation to generation. Yet skin color did not stop many freed slaves
from prospering and gaining wealth beyond their well-to-do white
counterparts. Ellison was one of these. Though black he was a slave owner
and one of the top cotton gin manufacturers in the state.
