 Notes
Summary: Ashton Warner was born a slave in St. Vincent, West Indies but was purchased and freed by his aunt, Daphne Crosbie, a former slave, along with his mother, and other relatives. When he was ten years old, Mr. Wilson, a plantation owner, questioned Warner's claim to freedom, despite the legal papers his mother and aunt held, and Warner was forced to remain a slave. Although he was not subjected to the same degree of brutality as other slaves, Warner became indignant and defiant, because he believed in the legitimacy of his status as a free man. He eventually escaped and arrived in England in 1830, where he tried to contact Mr. Wilson in the hope of securing his freedom. Although Mr. Wilson had died, his executors agreed to investigate the matter. However, Warner died before a decision was reached and his narrative was published.
