Memorial for 19 of the African Children/Youths bought to this country in 1799 by Z.Macaulay to be educated and returned to their own countries as missionaries.
Only 6 of the children were alive at the end of 1805 the rest (19) had died mainly from measles and the effects of the english weather.
The 21 youngsters, between the ages of 10-19years,were educated at the African Academy(8 Rectory Grove).The 4 girls were found a home with a Battersea woman.
The youths were all buried in Clapham, many in the churchyard of Holy Trinity-now St.Pauls churchyard.
The survivors were sent back to SIERRE LEONNE where a new school had been opened.
Many of the deceased youths were sons of Native Chiefs,many originated from places as Novia Scotia,Canada and from the Maroon societies of Jamaica.
