The Price of Freedom

"Lord Penwallow, welcome to Calabar. Cutler Beckett, at your service, sir."
"Mr. Beckett. Thank you for your gracious welcome. It is good to be back on land, here in Calabar.
Cutler Beckett and Reginald Marmaduke Bracegirdle-Penwallow[src]

Calabar was a port-city on the west coast of Africa. The city was governed by the British colonial authorities, and it was one of the major slave-trading ports in the Bight of Benin, and on the Slave Coast.


"Not the best spot to find able-bodied seamen, I fear."
Jack Sparrow on Calabar[src]

As far back as the 16th century, Calabar had been a recognized international sea port, shipping out goods such as palm oil. During the era of the Atlantic slave trade, it subsequently became a major port in the transportation of African slaves. Most slave ships that transported slaves from Calabar were English, at around 85% of these ships being from Bristol and Liverpool merchants. Old Calabar (Duke Town) and Creek Town, were crucial towns in the trade of slaves in that era. At some point prior to 1730s, the East India Trading Company set an office in Calabar, which soon became one of the major ports for the EITC.
