Were your family involved in the slave trade?

My family owes much of it's wealth to the slave trade. Although we weren't fortunate enough to own slaves or trade them we were involved in the trade of so called "negro cloth" which is a low grade woollen cloth that was sold to slave owners to clothe slaves.

Only a relatively few people ever owned slaves but there was a huge range of industries supporting it. So did any of your family benefit from the slave trade either directly or indirectly?
