Then comes a fascinating history of changes and developments, with new ideas, new situations and new people to fill his every need.
1833 abolition of slavery in UK, was repealed but still effective. Abolition of slavery again became a big issue. Plantation workers were all slaves kidnapped from usually African homelands. Entire villages, even tribes were wiped out.
By 1880 in England, families were divided by differing opinions. Social standing, once bolstered by the money made from slavery, now became shameful as the younger generation developed their own agendas.

Edgar Walker moved to a new land where he could develop his skills as an entrepreneur just as he changed his whole world. An ex slaver he returned to his early plans and found different aims to plan and stimulate his life. As they grew older, his family each took their own pathway to the future.
