Black and Asian History In Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire Record Office holds references to black people in the county
dating back to 1603. These were obtained from parish registers from around
the county. A list of references to black people has been compiled by James
Turtle a the Gloucestershire Records Office over a number of years. However
it remains very difficult to trace 'blacks' from the records unless specific
mention is made of their 'color'. It is likely there remains much evidence
to be discovered.
There are also excellent historical sections in the Untold Stories books.
