defendants who were originally indicted for "having burglariously
In 1838, approximately two years after landing, a Brazoria County grand jury found that "several negroes belonging to the Estate of Munroe Edwards, did Burglariously and feloniously Enter the House of Hamilton & Henderson used as a provisional store and did then and there purloin from said house two bottles of Sugar & five sacks of Corn the whole amounting in Damage to one hundred and six dollars." That same year eight men belonging to Edwards took to the woods to force his executor to provide them with wives, an act that required not only communication among the Africans but an ability to negotiate with their captors.
