In 1662, the General Assembly of Virginia determined that any child born to an enslaved woman would also be a slave.[1]Relatively few women slaves during this period were runaways, and when they did run, they commonly escaped with their children. The mother-daughter relationship in the slave community during the colonial period was often the most enduring and cherished.[2]
