Listing of slave owners and their location are shown alphabetically below by: last name, first name, year.
Slaves were counted in the 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, and 1860 census (bold means that those census records are included below).
In the 1860 census, as slavery came to nearing its close, there were 3,950,450 registered slaves. The purpose of this page is purely for genealogic research. No historical judgements are intended or made.
You are welcome to send information for inclusion to Norfolk1956@gmail.com
How accurate are the slave schedules? I know of several instances where the count may be low by more than 50% (Stephen Norfleet, William B Gaulden/Goulden) — so there may be a number of slaves that are grossly unaccounted for within the schedules.
Numerous Gauldens, Goldens, Goldings, Gouldens/Gouldings, etc., came by their family name due to being slaves. For these GFolks, tracking their family history is already quite difficult. There may be clues however if they know something about their lives during slavery.
Documents with Update Info
The following records have info which needs to be added below.

Entries ordered by Last Name, First Name and year
The General Assembly passed a law defining “What Persons are Tithable,” a “tithable” was a member of the potentially productive labor force: free caucasian males age sixteen or older plus “all negroes imported whether male or female, and Indian servants male or female however procured, being sixteen years of age” (Hening, Statutes at Large, 1:454-455)
These Tithe lists can be a good place to find the names of slaves and their owners.
|1686||Barbados||Gideon Golding||Golding||8||St Lucy’s Parish, Barbados|
|One young male slave, named Baddue. One female slave named Bess, with six children.|
|Peter Goulding is listed in a census of St. George Parish, Dorchester, SC. His household has one male (himself), one woman, two children and 11 slaves (4 males, 3 women, 4 children).|
|1749||SC||John||Golden||6||Camden, SC area|
Already living in South Carolina, John Golden had a wife, two children and six slaves. Counting the slaves as settlers, he asked for 500 acres of land (50 acres/person) in Fredericksburgh, SC … which became Camden, SC circa 1758.
South Carolina turned him down, noting that the land was reserved for new settlers.
It is unknown what became of John Golden and family.
See John Goulding 1759 below. This Golden family could well be Gouldings.
|1750||VA||William||Golding||2||Orange Co., VA|
|26 Jul 1750, page 274 of tithables, William Golding had two slaves ‘a Negro Lad & Negro Girl’ … Jimmy was age 16 and Doll was age 12. It appears that William Golding and the slaves appeared before the Orange County Court and determination of the slave’s ages was of importance. No reason is given.
Based upon other cases mentioned, it may be that William Golding was required to pay taxes (tithes) for slaves, and these depended upon their age.
Virginia 1658: the General Assembly passed a law defining “What Persons are Tithable,” a “tithable” was a member of the potentially productive labor force: free caucasian males age sixteen or older plus “all negroes imported whether male or female, and Indian servants male or female however procured, being sixteen years of age” (Hening, Statutes at Large, 1:454-455)

|1759||GA||John||Goulding||16||Midway, Liberty Co, GA|
|John Goulding asked for 300 acres of land so he could move his family of four and 16 slaves. // My belief is that he is related to Peter Goulding and the other Gouldings that settled at Midway, Georgia.|
|1777||SC||William||Golding||20||Ninety Six District (Abbeville), SC|
Although he did not die until 1782, William Golding prepared his will in 1777. Within his will he names a number of slaves and to whom they will eventually go to. Doll, Lucy, Jack, Harry, and Hannah go to son John Golding. George, Joe, Cate go to son Reuben Golding. Jacob goes to son Anthony. Lankistor goes to son Richard. Callamy, Ben, Milley, Lett go to daughter Mary Golding Leonard. Wagoner and Lucy go to son William Jr. Jeni goes to daughter Milley Golden Griffin. Nancy goes to Sarah Golding Foster. Jane goes to daughter Elizabeth Golding Tinsley. Nan and Poss go to son Robert.
Many of these slaves probably began their lives in Orange County, Virginia which is where the Goldings came from in the early 1770s. The children of these slaves probably lived their lives in Louisiana and Mississippi when the Goldings (and related kin of Foster family) migrated westward by very early 1800s.
Household Remarks: 10 Apr 1782, District No. 4: free males above 21: 1; slaves: 12; “No Nett[?] Cattle”: 14; “No Horses mares Colts & Mules”: 4; “No wheels for Riding Carriags”: 0; “No. Billiard Tables”: 0; “No Ordinary.

|Isabella was the wife of the late Anthony Golding, son of William Golding (1704-1882) and Elizabeth Foster (1704-1775), who moved with their families from Orange, Virginia to the Ninety Six District about 1771. Anthony passed away in late 1801, leaving slaves to Isabella and family members. Some slaves are named within the will.|
|1810||VA||Jesse||Gaulding||3||Prince Edward, VA|
Slaves were counted in the census beginning in 1790, but not named. The 1850 and 1860 census provided a place for slave’s names to be listed but their name seldom was — although their age, sex and race (black or mulatto) was listed.
There are no known registers of slaves before 1812. The best place to find information about a slave before 1812 is in the private papers of the slave owner, or in records about the owner or his or her property. Papers might still be with the family or deposited in a local archive or library where the family lived or settled.
Wills would often name specific slaves to be passed to specific family members or to third parties.
|1814||SC||John Golden Jr||Golden||1||Laurens, SC|
|John Golden Jr died intestate in 1814. No known family members. His property was inventoried and valued at $487 … $450 of that comes just from the value of one young slave named ‘Frank’. Frank is referred to as a ‘negro boy’ but chances are that Frank was older than 16 and less than 30. No information as to what happened to Frank. More info may be in the probate records at Laurens, SC.|

|1830||VA||Elizabeth||Gaulding||8||Prince Edward, Virginia|
|1830||GA||Mark (Jr.)||Golden||7||District 269, Lincoln, Georgia|

|1850||LA||Edouard Sr.||Gaudin||61||Ascension Parish, LA|
54 of 61 slaves are listed as ‘Filipino’. The schedule, to my eyes, appears to indicate that all slaves are black. Not sure why listed as Filipino.
Yet, there were Filipinos living in Louisiana.
How did Filipinos get to Louisiana? As it turns out, there were a large number of Filipinos that settled in Louisiana beginning around 1763. These were Filipinos that were pressed into naval service as either slaves or servants within the Spanish fleet that serviced the Spanish Empire. They escaped when they reached Mexico and somehow found their way to Louisiana. They would settle in the bayou and set up villages there.
How they came to be slaves on the Gaudin property is unknown … but they are documented as such in the 1850 Slave schedule for Edouard Gaudin and a nearby relative, Elphage Gaudin, who had three Filipino slaves.
Per the family history, the Gaudin family was originally from Quebec, Canada and relocated to Louisiana prior to 1771, with Edouard Goudin Sr being born in Louisiana in 1771, son of Joseph Gaudin and Genevieve Landry).
