Thanks for the link, critter.

I was very interested in this story. Particularly in the application of Virginia's law of partus in Oney Judge's case:

Quote:
Partus sequitur ventrem, often abbreviated to partus, in the British North American colonies and later in the United States, was a legal doctrine which the English colonists incorporated in legislation related to definitions of slavery. It was derived from the Roman civil law; it held that the status of a child followed that of his or her mother. It was widely adopted into the laws of slavery in the colonies and the following United States.


I was wondering about other applications of the principle . . .
