You heard wafting over the water the din of the crew readying the ship and sprucing up the slaves for the sale, along with a blend of African languages welling up from below deck. The children in the town, particularly the boys, would be down at the dock, taking it all in and perhaps jeering at the slaves as they stepped ashore. Since the sale took place on board, Tasker and Lowndes would have arranged for boats to row prospective buyers out to the ship. Planters such as Samuel Beall had come from around the colony to look at the slaves, possibly to buy some, and then to return home.

By the time he died, sixty properties had passed through his hands. His residence at the time Yarrow arrived was on a tract called the Charles and William. 32 It lay between Sligo Creek and the Northwest Branch near Takoma Park, Maryland, a Washington suburb. 33 The log houses were where slaves would live and probably where Yarrow lived when Beall owned the property. There is no trace of these buildings today. Samuel owned other large parcels of land scattered for sixteen miles along Rock Creek from its mouth at the Potomac River in Georgetown northward to Olney, Maryland.

The other partners in the company were John Hardman, William Whalley, and Edward Lowndes. The company did not own the Elijah but was just the local agent or factor, selling the slaves upon arrival in Annapolis. The company itself financed only one ship, Tryton, which carried 352 slaves to Florida in 1756. Still, the four partners in the company, investing on their own behalf, regularly participated in slave ship syndicates. 32 The Lowndes family alone—Christopher and Edward Lowndes, their brother Charles, and Christopher’s son Francis— invested in ships that made thirty-seven voyages between 1746 and 1770 and carried 9,637 slaves.
