Manumittors of Slaves in Antigua (1821)
The Registrar of Slaves in Antigua prepared this return of manumissions effected by purchase, bequest, or otherwise from 1 January 1821 to 31 December 1826 in the island, stating: date of manumission, sex of person manumitted, age (only occasionally given), price paid for the slave's redemption, at whose expense effected, and amount of fees. In the section covering bequests, the information is limited to date, sex, and at whose expense effected. In most cases the manumittor's full name is shown.

White Poor in Antigua (1821-1826)
The vestries of the parishes of Antigua raised a tax every year, under an Act of the island, for the maintenance of ministers and the poor; there were no poor rates. A tax was also assessed on merchandizes imported and sold within the island, the property of non-resident traders, in relief of the burdens of the parishes. The maintenance of the poor was weekly distributed to them; there were no free coloured or black paupers provided for by the parishes. The free coloured or free black were not taxed for the support of the poor; slaves were supported by their owners. This return of the white poor supported by the parishes was made to the Colonial Department: it gives full name, age, residence, and amounts disbursed, year by year.
