Baron Grenville

Dean Dillopolis, People Historian

There is an interesting connection between the two men who negotiated the Jay Treaty.  America’s John Jay and Great Britain’s Baron William Grenville both struck major blows against slavery.  Remember our post on John Jay and his fight to make slavery illegal in New York?  Well Baron Grenville succeeded in passing a law abolishing the British slave trade in 1807.
