Pero, the life of a slave in eighteenth century Bristol
Pero was an enslaved man, born in the West Indies, owned by the sugar planter and merchant John Pinney whose Bristol house is now the Georgian House Museum in Great George Street. Pero lived in that house for some years and, since a footbridge on the Harbourside was named after him in 1999, his name has become a familiar one in the city.
