47 The company itself certainly believed this to be the case. " Although this trade was illegal in the early period of the company's activity, these "separate traders" were present from the beginning. During the four years from 1679 to 1682, for example, 32 interlopers were sighted and reported to the company by its agents in Barbados, Jamaica, Antigua, and Nevis; of these only 4 were seized by the agents. The actual number of these illegal cargoes was probably higher, for the records from which this count is drawn may be incomplete, and other voyages probably went undetected by company agents.

In 1691 the company wrote to its agents in the West Indies, who for many years had been under orders to seize interlopers, instructing them that they no longer had any powers derived from the charter to do so. 54 The possibility remained of securing a new authorization for monopoly based on an act of Parliament, and the company initiated an attempt to do this in 1690. This effort faced the opposition of lobbies organized by West Indian planters seeking cheap slaves, English merchants seeking access to West African markets, and shipowners seeking higher rental prices for their ships.

58 The typical engagement was for a voyage from England to the West Indies by way of West Africa. The hire contracts, or "charterparties," contained many clauses, and included agreements between the Royal African Company and the ship's owners specifying the size of the crew, the number of passengers, the places of loading and discharge and the time to be spent at each, the composition and value of the cargo to be carried to Africa, and the number of slaves the company intended to ship to the West Indies.
