York Nash

York Nash travels alone in both the Book of Negroes and the Birchtown Muster. In the BON his age is listed as 50 but in the Birchtown it is only 25. However despite this the tithable entries for his stated former owner Thomas Nash Jnr clearly show York being listed right back to 1751. Incidentally this is not the first entry for Nash- but 1751 marks the first year York is mentioned, underscoring his age at 50 in 1783.
