Exr. of Charles Mason vs. John Bull: Chancery Cause, Accomack County

This case involves a dispute between partners of Bull and Mason, a firm involved in trafficking enslaved people. The records include a folder of receipts for the sale of enslaved people, slave prison charges, names of purchasers of enslaved people, charges for passage to Norfolk, and other information about the firm.

This chancery cause is part of the Library of Virginia's "Virginia Untold: The African American Narrative" collection. It has been separated from the main Virginia Untold collection on Transcribe due to its length.
