21. Give me a second
Bancrofft... "writing on the early Virginians, most of them were even convicts; but it must be remembered the crimes of which they were convicted were chiefly political."

James Davis Butler."British convicts shipped to American Colonies." American Historical Review, Vol 2, No 1 (Oct 1896) P 13

And now to the meat of RECENT research...

"In 1578 (Gilbert) set sail with a large fleet and 500 men, including at least one convict who had been reprieved from execution and handed over to him."

Don Kirkland. White Cargo. (New York: New York University Press, 2008) 50

Very recent research is showing that the first white slaves when to Virginia and that the first African Slaves were brought from Angola, not by a Dutch ship, but a British Privateer.
