[The following two entries are but small parts from the details of an interesting account of an insurrection by the slaves at the Western end of the island of Jamaica. Whilst these are the only mentions of the name LONGMORE (one a magistrate, the other a slave), I urge you to read the whole account on the London Gazette's website. There is a link at the top of this page]

By the KING,

A PROCLAMATION.

WILLIAM IV.

WHEREAS it has been represented to us, that the slaves in some of Our West India colonies, and of our possessions on the continent of South America, have been erroneously led to believe that orders have been sent out by us for their emancipation; and whereas such belief has produced acts of insubordination, which have excited Our highest displeasure; We have thought fit, by and with the advice of Our Privy Council, to issue this Our Royal proclamation ; and We do hereby declare, and make known, that the slave population in Our said colonies and possessions, will forfeit all claim on Our protection if they shall fail to render entire submission to the laws, as well as dutiful obediencc to their masters: and We hereby charge and command all Our Governors of Our Said West India colonies and possessions, to give the fullest publicity to this Our proclamation, and to enforce, by all the legal means in their power, the punishment of those who may disturb the tranquillity nnd peace of Our said colonies and possessions.

Given at the Court, at St. James's, this third day of June one thousand eight hundred and thirty one, and in the second year of Our reign.

GOD save the KING.

[Then follows a number of responses of which this is No. 6]

Court House, Montego Bay,
December 19, 1831.
SIR,
WE, the undersigned magistrates, this day assembled in special sessions, have to inform you, that from the disorderly behaviour of the negroes on Salt Spring Estate, in the neighbourhood of this town, a guard of the militia has been stationed on that property since Friday last. We consider it highly necessary, for the preservation of the public peace during the approaching holidays, that a company of the 22nd regiment should be stationed at the barracks in this town; we therefore require you, with as little delay as possible, to order the above-mentioned force to be sent here, to remain for such period as we may deem proper for the preservation of the public saferty.
We have, &c.

No. 18.
Deposition on Oath of Wm. Annand, Qverseer of Ginger Hill Plantation, in the Parish of Saint Elizabeth.

Y.S. Estate, 1st Jan. 1832.
HAVING received information from Mr. James Campbell, Overseer, on Y. S. Estate, with whom I had lived as book-keeper, that the slaves from Ginger Hill to Belvidere Estate, in Saint James's, intended to disarm the white people during the Christmus holidays, and advising me to come down to Y. S. Estate, as he intended keeping all his white people together there, I was much surprised at such information, having seen nothing in the conduct of the slaves belonging to Ginger Hill to induce me to suspect any thing of this kind. I did not go down, being satisfied by the behaviour of the people, that the information was incorrect. I was, however, undeceived, for on Wednesday morning, the 28th of December, when they were ordered to turn out to work, seeing several of the slaves about the house, I asked what they wanted; a slave belonging to Ginger Hill, named Wm. Buchannan, said they had come to beg Busha for today, as Sunday was Christmas Day. I said I had already given orders to the driver to that effect; all that I wanted was to see them turn out, and see they were all there, and they should have the remainder of the day. With this they seemed dissatisfied, and no thanks were returned. I went into the house, and was followed immediately by the said slave, William Buchannan, who laid hold of me, saying, "Busha, you now my prisoner," and called for his accomplices, namely, William Arnold, Charles Longmore, George Barrett, Alexander, Thomas Hedley, and Johnny, all slaves belonging to Ginger Hill. On enquiring what was the matter, they said they had worked long enough as slaves., and intended now to fight for their freedom, which had been long promised them; that all they wanted of me was to deliver up my arms, and whatever, powder I had, then I might remain undisturbed on the property as long as I chose, provided I did not interfere against them. I endeavoured to reason with them on the impropriety of such conduct, but to no effect; they said that I knew as well as themselves, that Jamaica was now free, aud half the estates from there to Montego Bay were burnt down the night before, that they were obliged to assist their brethren in this work of the Lord ; that this was not the work of man alone, but they had assistance from God. I saw that a refusal of their demand was useless, and delivered up my arms, and what powder I had in the house. They then departed, advising me not to remove from the house, as if I attempted it, I should certainly be shot by some of their guards who were posted on all sides of the property. I remained in the house, and observed them through the day bringing in arms from the settlers around.

On Thursday, the 29th, I saw a great many strange negroes, who, as I understood, belonged to Chesterfield, Retrieve, Richmond Hill, and Belvidere, some of them with fire-arms, and others with lances, cutlasses, &c. They had scouts posted on all the hills around, from the Y. S. Estate, extending towards Saint James's to give them notice of the approach of the militia. On seeing a com-: pany of the Saint Elizabeth's regiment, marching up to Ipswich Estate, they suspected, from the notice they had received from their scouts, that the said company was moving towards Ginger Hill, and collected all together in a narrow defile, called John's River, to await their approacb. As soon as they found the - company had gone to Ipswich, they returned to Ginger Hill. About one o'clock, 1 p.m., it was hinted to me that they intended burning the buildings on the place that night. I sent for the head driver, who came, and about three o'clock, p.m., on seeing a strong party of them moving towards the house, he (the driver) advised me to follow him, save my own life, and mind nothing else; I did so, and he conducted me to the house of a freeman named Crawford. I was informed, that, on coming to the house, they enquired for me, and expressed themselves happy that I had gone away, as they intended setting fire to the place immediately. They then went to the negro houses, and in half an hour returned, taking away every moveable thing out of the house and stores, which they accomplished by dusk, and afterwards set fire to all the buildings. About seven or eight o'clock a party of them came to the house of Crawford, where I was, forced his arms from him, and brandishing their cutlasses over my head, and pointing their muskets at me, made me swear that I would never stand between them and their rights. The active person in this scene, and who seemed to have the command of them, was a slave named Samuel Sharp, belonging, I was told, to T. G. Grey, Esq., of Croydon, in St. James, and who, I understand, is a ruler (so called) of the sect of the Baptists. He said, he did not wish to take away the life of any person who did not stand between him and his rights; that it was but lately that he had begun to know much of religion, but that now he knew, and I knew as well, that freedom was their right, and freedom they would have; that letters had long ago been sent out from England to that effect, but that the people of Jamaica kept them as slaves, without any authority for doing so. He said a great deal more, all tending to show, that, from the religious notions he had imbibed, he conceived that the slaves had a right to be free.

By daylight on the morning of Friday the 30th ultimo, the buildings of Ginger Hill were in ashes. I remained at the house of Crawford, having been warned by the rebels that, if I attempted to make my escape, I should be killed by the guards. A large part of them, I understood, went this day to Ipswich, but, seeing a company of militia there, returned, leaving a few hands to burn the buildings of that estate, should an opportunity offer during the night.

On the morning of Saturday the 31st, three of the party, named William Buchanan, S. Barrett, belonging to Ginger Hill, and G. Little, belonging to Mistress Milne, gone off the country, came to me, two of them with fire-arms, and the other with a sword; I asked William Buchanan what he wanted ; he said, here is the captain, pointing to G. Little. I then asked the latter what he wanted; he said, pointing his sword to my breast, that they would give me my choice, whether I would give up my life or my authority on Ginger Hill, which latter they demanded in writing; that they intended presenting it at Black River with others. I gave them an acknowledgment under my hand, that I had given up the charge of the place; they then warned me to take care what I had written, as they had a man below who would read it to them, and if they found any thing wrong in it, they would pay me another kind of visit. The said George Little said that they had lost one of their profession, and now intended shewing less mercy than they had done; he said also, in a boasting manner, that he with two others had burnt down the buildings of Ipswich the night previous, driving the whole guard before ihem; that they intended entering Saint Elizabeth's on New Year's Day with two hundred men. William Buchanan said (in addition to what has already been deposed) that the whites considered the ships-of-war on their side, but that now they found it was otherwise, for that they were dispersing the white guards whercever they were collected all round the island, and landing boxes of black sand (meaning, I suppose, gunpowder) for the slaves. About three or four o'clock on the afternoon of this day, a slave, named George Crawford, belonging to Ginger Hill, who had been forced against his will to join the rebels, came running to me, saying, that the white guard had come to Ginger Hill, taken the negroes by surprise, dispersed them all, and set fire to the negro houses. In fifteen minutes afterwards the grenadier company of the Saint Elizabeth's regiment appeared, and rescued me from my perilous situation.

During the time of these disturbances, I was told by a slave, named Susannah Crawford, belonging to Ginger Hill, that she heard from Anne Laye, a free person of colour, living near Ginger Hill, and a member of the the Baptist persuasion, that a Mr. Burchell, a Baptist missionary, who had gone off the country last year, had arrived at the foot of Montego Bay, on Wednesday or Thursday sen'night, that he had shewn himself to none, but remained. concealed on board a Spanish vessel or some vcssel-of-war. That he did not intend landing until this affair was settled, but had written to his deputies that his dearly beloved children must not regret his absence, for that he would be to them a pillar of iron, and would always be their support. That they must shed no blood, for life was sweet, easy to be taken away, but very hard to give.
So help me God.
(Signed) WM. ANNAND.
