Introduction

A Certificate of trading a slave with a horse is the third and last appendix to A Document of trading a slave with a horse. It is a certificate issued by the county office notarizing an economic transaction. The certificate explains each step of the verification process taken by the county office: collecting and comparing all the testimonies, and looking up the slave register to confirm the ownership of the slave that is being sold. Together with other appendixes and the original contract, this appendix shows a highly developed bureaucratic and administrative system in Joseon Korea.

行縣監[署押]

(Translated by Jong Woo Park)

The forty-second year of Manryeok (1614), third month, fifth day.

Registered by the administrative office of the Pyeongchang County (present-day Gangjin, Jeollanamdo).

This document is the certified copy [of the county slave register]. I have inquired about the attached document [of slave transaction], the oral statements, and everything else.

I have [also] closely examined them with the slave register of the county government office.

There is a registration document issued by the Gangjin County on the thirteenth day of the second month in the forty-fifth year of Gajeong (1566).

[In that document, there is a record that] Seokgeum, born in the year of Eulyu, gave Jeongryeon a copy [of the slave register] and the office [of Gangjin], thereupon, has the record of him.

It is certain that Jongnam, a male slave born in the year of Jeongyu and the third child of Geundeok—a child of Seokgeum--, has recently been purchased.

I, [therefore,] give the slave Privy and his offspring the copy of the document with the attachment of the official decision.

This process is done legally and properly.

County Magistrate [Stamp]

Since the document was signed by Madame Kim and witnessed by (possibly) her relatives, would this the case that Madame Kim managed her husband's family property as the widow of the deceased Yun Sahoe?
