About Robert Churchill Carter, III, of Nomini

\n
\n
\n

Robert "Councillor" Carter III was an American plantation owner, founding father, and onetime British government official. After the death of his wife, Frances Ann Tasker Carter, in 1787, Carter embraced the Swedenborgian faith and freed almost 500 slaves from his Nomini Hall plantation and large home in Westmoreland County, Virginia. By a "Deed of Gift" filed with the county courts in 1791, he began the process of manumitting slaves in his lifetime. His manumission is the largest known release of slaves in North American history prior to the American Civil War and the largest number ever manumitted by an individual in the US.

Notes:

\n
    \n
  • Carter almost always wrote Nomony Hall, although it is usually spelled Nomini or Nominy.
  • \n
  • Of their thirteen daughters and four sons, eight daughters and all four sons reached adulthood.
