    Did Edward Digges own slaves?


      Sir Edward Digges, early Governor of Virginia, ca. 1650, apparently grew very good tobacco on his property. That property was called E. D. Plantation (later Bellfield Plantation), located in York County, Virginia. I want to see if he had slaves to work his tobacco, and get information about them.
