Slaves in Delaware are sometimes mentioned in deeds (see "Land and Property"), in wills (see "Probate Records"), in tax records (see "Taxation"), and in court order books (see the "Court Records" pages of these Delaware Wiki pages). A few parish registers ("Church Records") list slaves who attended church with their masters.

For lists of licenses to import and export slaves see Mary Fallon Richards "New Castle County Licenses to Import and Export Slaves, Issued by Superior Court, Delaware Genealogical Society Journal 1, no. 1 (October 1980):  The master is listed, with the names of the slaves, their ages, transported from where to where, dates, and other information.

For more information about slaves see the Place Search of the FamilySearch Catalog under:
