Deposition*8 March 1654/55He gave a deposition on 8 March 1654/55 at Northampton Co, VA. The deposition of Captain Samuell Goldsmyth taken 8 Mar 1654/55 sayth that being at the house of Anthony Johnson, Negro, about the beginning of November last, to receive a hogshead of tobacco, a Negro called John Casar came to this deponent and told him that he came to Virginia for 7 or 8 years as an indentured servant, and that he had demanded his freedom of Anthony Johnson his master and further said that he had kept him his servant 7 years longer then he should or ought, and desired that his deponent would see that he might have no wrong; whereupon your deponent demanded of Anthony Johnson his indenture the said Johnson answered he never saw any. The Negro replied when he came in he had an indenture, Anthony Johnson said he had the said Negro for life. But Mr. Robert and George Parker said they know that the said Negro had an indenture in one Mr. Carey's hand on the other side of the Bay; further the said Mr. Robert Parker and his brother George said (if the said Anthony Johnson did not let the Negro go free) that said Negro John Casar would recover most of his corn from him the said Johnson. Then Anthony Johnson (as this deponent did suppose) was in fear (upon the discourse) Anthony Johnson's son-in-law, his wife and his own two sons persuaded the Negro Anthony Johnson to set the said John Casar free.2,3 
Court - name in stat*23 November 1654He was named in a statement that was recorded in court records on 23 November 1654 at Northampton Co, VA. I, Anthony Johnson Negro do hereby acquitt & discharge John Casar Negro from all service claims & demands whatsoever from the beginning of the world to this day; and do promise (according to the custom of services) to pay Jno. Casar corn & cloathes. Signed 23 Nov 1654 by Anth: (his mark) Johnson. Witt: Sam'll Gouldsmyth, Robert Parker and Geor: Parker. (NOTE: The dates of this sequence of events regarding Anthony Johnson's servant John Casar seem out of order, as the final statement freeing Casar is recorded in a later record book, but has an earlier date then the charges that were brought against him.)4
