can anybody decipher the beginning of the surname please on a Shropshire will around 1772

United States of America / Carolina were Benjamin Prioleau roots there.
« on: Tuesday 26 January 21 11:55 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find out if Benjamin Prioleau b1740 in ? died Derbyshire 1808 actually was born in Carolina. A George Austin  a tobacco plantation owner and slave trader brought  Benjamin back to Shifnal Shropshire around 1762 when George fell out with his partner and he brought two slaves back with him I have assumed be it right that Benjamin was one of the two.Benjamin was baptised at the age of 27 at Shifnal and by the side of the entry it says a blackman of Mr.Austin.Benjamin decribed now as a servant man goes on to marry a widow Margaret Mansell  in Shifnal.Benjamin is left 25 guineas in Mr Austin's will then described as his servant.At some point Benjamin and Margaret end up around the Buxton area of Derbyshire.
Are there any records available recording the names of slaves bought or any birth records available for this period.One of Mr Austin's plantations was called ShifnalAny help to steer me in the right direction would be much appreciated.
