ABOLITION FROM BELOW: THE 1808 REVOLT IN THE CAPE COLONY

ABOLITION FROM BELOW: THE 1808 REVOLT IN THE CAPE COLONY

Nicole Ulrich

On 27 October 1808, troops dispatched by Lord Caledon, Governor of the Cape colony, quickly apprehended more than 300 slaves and servants who had staged an armed uprising in the Zwartland, Koeberg and Tygerberg districts. The participating slaves originated from various parts of the Indian Ocean Basin and East Africa. They were supported by indentured KhoiSan farm servants; dispossessed indigenous inhabitants who lived in the colony; and two Irish drifters, part of a transient population of seafarers passing through the South African port which straddles the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. After two extra-judicial enquiries, most captives were found “not guilty of any particular crime or violence” and were handed back to their masters. Fifty one men who played an active part in the revolt were charged with high treason or public violence. Their trial revealed a profound threat. The accused “unanimously declared to have been well treated” by their masters, showing a rejection of slavery as such.
