Extracts from the Records of the Edinburgh Tolbooth
(The Book of the Old Edinburgh Club, Vol 12.) Transportation to Jamacia.
Although the records may indicate that transportation was to eg Jamacia, the prisoners could easily end up in other of the islands in the West Indies such as Barbados. But sometimes weather, or greed ( the price of a slave was about £10 and varied between West Indies and America), may have led to diversion to the American colonies.
Transportation to Jamacia: William Stitt
