I see on another deed an explanation for the varying release dates of children. It comes from a Delaware State Assembly bill passed in 1787, intended to prevent the Exploitation of Slaves. An owner may manumit any Negro or Mulatto Slave above the age of 18 years and under the age of 35 years if that slave is generally in good health and capable of earning a living.
