A Key to the Past

Church Records The journey begins:::

Through the attach church record I discovered that Sarah was the property belonging to Mr. Beaudjoy. From this document I was later able to identify Sarah owner as Anthony Beaudhuy whom there is no birth date, was a white plantation manager at Estate Betsey Jewels on St. Croix. By 1755 he was a co-owner with Jacob Boffron.

The estate consisted of 100 acres mostly of Caneland and 50 in other cultivation total 150 acres. By 1803 Anthony Beaudhuy was the sole owner of the estate with 26 slaves on the plantation managed by William Carty.

In 1779 Anthony Beaudhuy enters into the doors of the Anglican/Episcopal church with 3 slave children for baptism. Adam, Peter and Sarah… From hence these Mulatto slave children take on the Beaudhuy name.
