Annapolis Capital (Newspaper) - March 24, 2005, Annapolis, Maryland For a Black aristocracy a a different kind of slavery Calendar our legacy by Janice Hayes Williams m looking Back 200 years Annapolis thrived i during the general Assembly very much a a like today As delegates and senators around the state came to the City to assemble lobby argue and eventually make Laws for the people of Maryland. Representatives arrived by horse and buggy with their personal property in Tow including their slaves. The slaves provided All manner of service to ensure their masters needs were met. Some called these House slaves the a Black slaves coming to Annapolis had the Opportunity to leave the darkness of physical and mental abuse whippings working excessive hours sexual exploitation experienced and witnessed on the plantations throughout Maryland. During session Edward Lloyd in brought his favored few to his Annapolis Home from his Talbot county Plantation on the Wye River. His Annapolis Home Chase Lloyd House on Maryland Avenue was purchased unfinished in 1791 from Samuel Chase one of Maryland a signers of the declaration of Independence Lloyd was a former Delegate and senator and one of the largest slave owners in the state. He was the kind of slave owner who hired cruel overseers and rarely provided Freedom to his slaves. Sail Wilks aka., Annapolis sail one of Lloyd s favored slaves was responsible for running the Annapolis Home during and after the Winter session. Evidenced by the Lloyd family papers sail was responsible for an extensive list of China linens plates Kitchen and pantry items and laundry equipment. House slaves to the Lloyd family who represented Maryland in prestige wealth and Power were required to represent the lifestyles of their masters. Frederick Douglass who was owned by the Lloyds for a Brief period knew of sail Wilks As she was one of the most talked about slaves on the Wye Plantation. In his memoirs a the life and times of Frederick Douglass a he wrote a the House slaves represented a sort of Black aristocracy who resembled the Field hands in nothing except color and in this they held the advantage Rich and Beautiful. Their hair too. In dress As Well As in form and feature in manner and speech in tastes and habits the distance Between these favored few and the sorrow and hunger smitten multitudes of the Quarter and the Field was Edward Lloyd in died in 1796 in an inventory of his property taken in 1799, 13 of his favored slaves were Given to his wife Elizabeth Tayloe Lloyd. There were 12 at Annapolis which included sail three daughters and her son John. Her son Williams Wilks remained on Wye at Home House the big House. While living in Annapolis during the Early 1800s, sail made Good use of the Freedom to walk about the town meeting other slaves and free Blacks in an Effort to provide emancipation for her children. By 1816, sail had managed to marry off her daughter Anne to a wealthy Young free Black minister and entrepreneur the Rev. Henry Price son of Smith Price. In order to marry Anne Price paid mrs. Lloyd 300 pounds for Annas Freedom. They married one week later. Sails position As a favored slave secured her privileges not afforded to others. However the dark cruel Side of slavery was Ever present for everyone regardless of status or the color of their skin. Such was the Case with her oldest son William Wilks. The stories of William and sail Wilks Are talked about by Talbot county historians today. It was rumoured by slaves and towns Folk around Easton that William Wilks was the son of Edward Lloyd in. William was described by Douglass As a Fine looking Man White As anyone on the Plantation who bore a striking resemblance to the son of Edward Lloyd a James Murray Lloyd. William Coachman to Edward Lloyd a governor of Maryland in 1809, was disliked by Lloyd family members it is said that William spent time in the taverns of Easton claiming to be the son of Lloyd the in and half brother to the governor William was described As Well dressed with Fine accessories including a Gold watch and Chain. The Lloyd family papers at the Maryland historical society reveal receipts for his shoes and clothing provided by the Lloyd a Shoemakers and tailors. James Murray Lloyd angry with Williams bold accusations demanded his father whip William and sell him South. Not even sail in her position of privilege could save her son from this Fate. William after being whipped in front of the slaves at Home House was taken to Baltimore in shackles to be sold at auction by the notorious slave trader Austin Woldfolk. At auction William was purchased by the Rev. Henry Price of Asbury methodist episcopal Church husband to his sister Anne. William returned with Price to Annapolis As a slave. He was Given his Freedom legally in 1831. William Wilks moved to Baltimore. Before the death of Elizabeth Lloyd. Sail lobbied on behalf of her other daughters to secure their Freedom at a particular age which was included in the second codicil of Elizabeth Lloyd a will. Sails son John was sold by Elizabeth Lloyd to Henry h. Harwood who emancipated him in 1827.
