The Brigantine ""Zafiro"" or ""Ricomar"" was captured at sea by British
cruisers and adjudicated at a court established at Havana under international anti-slave
trade treaties. The image is of a picture of the first page of the court’s register of
""Liberated Africans"" taken from the ""Zafiro"". The register was kept as a formal record of
emancipation that helped protect the individual from subsequent re-enslavement. The image
is reproduced courtesy of the British National Archives.
