This dataset contains figures on the trade between England and Africa during the period 1699-1808: imports, exports, re-exports and indirect imports. A distinction is made between different trade flows (Londen, outports, re-exports in time and out of time, etc.). Quantities and values are given for 1100 different commodities in the eighteenth century, units (also decimalized) and pounds. Aggregates are given for each year and for each type of trade. The dataset also includes the total trade figures for England between 1700 until 1800. The dataset has been created for research purposes, in order to analyse the trade between England and Africa in the eighteenth century. The dataset has been deposited at the NHDA after the death of the original data-collector, M. Johnson, without any documentation.
