Appendix 4
Beverhout, Henry, Free Black Man from Nova Scotia to Sierra Leone
Simon Schama Rough Crossings -

p. 299]
Clarkson appointed forty black captains, including ... another Pioneer originally from St. Croix, Henry Beverhout, ... who were to be distributed among the ships. ...


p. 330] ...Henry Beverhout, one of the Methodist captains, came to see him to insist that this flock had nothing to do with the agitation. ..
p. 335] ... But, to his dismay, Clarkson also noticed that liquor was starting to make inroads among "his
blacks. To his amazement the Methodist preacher Henry Beverhout had actually complained that Clarkson withheld grog from the blacks working on the experimental garden attached to his house. To Clarkson this could only mean that Beverhout had somehow fallen under the influence of Peters, ...
p. 336] ...

When he got back from another trip up-river to Bance Island ... he was handed an extraordinary letter. It was signed by Henry Beverhout on behalf of his own company, but evidently spoke for many more. There were immediate, material, concrete issues to which Beverhout had addressed himself: "the pepel of our Companey Consesents to the wagers that your honoer proposul that is to work for two Shillens a day as long as we drowr our provisions'..."

But the document of the 25th of June was not just a list of grievances, more a social and political contract. It was an assertion, the first of its kind, of the civil and political rights to which the blacks knew they were entitled. It was, in fact, the first African-American demand for representation-a proper share in British freedom. 'We are all willing to be govern by the laws of england in full but we donot Consent to gave it in to your hands with out haven aney of our own Culler in it.' ... 'ther is non of us wold wish your hoer to go way [p. 337] and leave us hear but your will be pleased to rember what y our honer told the piepel in a maraca [America] at Shelburn that is whoever Came to Sarraleon wold be free and houls have a law and when theur war aney trial thear should be a jurey of both white and black and all should be equel so we Consideren all this think that we have a wright to Chuse men that we think proper for to act for us in a reasonable manner'. ... 'we wish for pece if posable we can but to gave all out of our hands we cannot your honer know that we have laws and ragerlations among our self and be Consirent with the laws of England because we have seen it in all the parts whear eaver we have being Sir we do not mene to take the law in our hands by no meanes but to have your honer approbation for we own you to be our had and governer.'

To think of Beverhout's remonstrance as clumsy in its expression is to mistake patois for incoherence. It is, in fact, eloquent, both of deeply held grievances and of a budding understanding of political rights andremedies. More than that, it is impossible to read its conditional acceptance of Clarkson's executive power and the repeated allegiance to the laws of England without seeing the document as a chapter in the long transatlantic history of liberty.


C. Fyfe, History of Sierra Leone.
p. 44] ...Henry Beverout [sic.], captain of a company and Methodist preacher, born free in St. Croix Island, whom he [Clarkson] suspected of having been under Peters' s influence, he won round by making him Church Clerk. ... [Ref. Colonial Williamsburg - British Headquarters Papers; John Clarkson Diary, 21 May 1792 (Fyfe had owned, but sold by 1962).
p. 56] ... Beverout went to the Rio Pongas, but the Muslims he preached to were unimpressed by his roaring style of oratory. ...
p. 103] ...

German missionaries followed Nicol's example .. Nyländer married Phillis Hazeley. She died after a few months and he subsequently married her successor as schoolmistress, Ann Beverout, one of the Methodist preachers' family. Her sister Frances, once Tilly's mistress at Bance Island, married the Rev. Charles Wenzel whose Eorpean wife had died in childbirth at the Rio Pongos. ...


p. 145] ... In 1823, Matthew Tilley, a son of the former Bance Island agent by one of the Beverouts ..., took charge with the title King's Printer.
