Depot 3 – The Return Voyage

The ship The Unity arrived on July 7, 1762 with 299 enslaved Africans on board in the Berbice colony in present-day Guyana.

The captain was instructed to first visit the Berbice colony. There he organized two auctions to sell the enslaved Africans.

After a long stay in Guyana, The Unity began its journey home on December 19, 1762. The journey already took 445 days at that time.

The crew members were back in Middelburg on March 27, 1763. An auction was held for the sale of the return cargo.
