Destruction of the Boyne estates by the rebel slaves in 1831

This watercolour shows the navy being used to put down a violent rising by slaves in Jamaica. Sam Sharpe (d.1832) was a Baptist preacher who called for the enslaved to stop working from Christmas Day 1831, as part of a peaceful protest at the continuation of slavery. Violence quickly ensued after the Kensington Estate in St James in the west of the island was set ablaze. The authorities reacted swiftly and brutally to suppress the rebellion. In total over 500 slaves were killed. Sam Sharpe, despite advocating non-violence, was apprehended and hanged. The Christmas Rising played an important role in hastening the end of slavery.
