This subseries consists of a financial records book of James Carroll, a wealthy Catholic planter, merchant, and slave owner in Maryland. Known as the “James Carroll Daybook” - though not technically a daybook, as it is not arranged strictly chronologically - this folio-sized volume of nearly 300 pages is a record of the commercial accounts maintained by the innovative planter-merchant James Carroll, including financial transactions related to enslaved individuals.

NOTE: Most materials dated 1900 and later have not been digitized. Materials dating 1900-1939 are available for research use at the Booth Family Center for Special Collections. All materials dated 1940 and later are restricted.
