Cambridge was an enslaved worker during the Wight period of Tuckahoe. He is thought to have been born around 1795.
Upon Hezekiah Wight’s death in 1837, Cambridge, along with a handful of other enslaved workers, was freed in accordance with Wight’s will. On June 14, 1838 Cambridge was registered on the list of “free negroes” and described as a “man of color of brown complexion about forty three years of age, about five feet four and a half inches high”. It was noted that he did not have any kind of scar or markings on his head, face, or hands.
