This chapter traces the frenzied efforts of planters to acquire a sufficient number of workers, free, indentured, or enslaved, particularly after they embraced the cultivation of sugar. Their efforts, based on their experience with servitude in England, to define the status of red, white, and black workers and the leadership role of the English in the slave trade to Barbados are the central themes.

Keywords:   free workers, indentured servants, slaves, slave trade, Dutch
