Released Slavery who married at Mdina, Malta during 1560 to 1764.


With all released slaves, the surname of adoption is always used with "de" to show difference. Though their offspring's don't carry "de" after their surname. I am very interested in any connection found to these listed here. Most likely these released slaves were of Northern African descent especially from the late 17th century.
