Cesar Picton was brought to this country as a slave aged just 6 years old in the 1760's.
BUT he was lucky. He was given to a wealthy family in Kingston Upon Thames who did not believe in slavery.
They educated him and treated him well.
Aged 30 Cesar set up his own business as a coal merchant in Kingston and became successful and wealthy. He died in his 80's and is buried in the parish church in the centre of Kingston.
Rudolph Walker stars as Cesar Picton.
