The analysis of the sub-saharan haplotypes found in the remains of the “Iglesia de la Concepción” in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, allows us to do a first approach to the composition of these populations in the canarian society of the XVIIIth century, and observe its possible relationship with the slavery phenomenon in Modern Ages. We have found several african haplotypes whose presence in the Archipelago could be due to different historical processes, from the aboriginal colonisation to the later arrival of african free and slave populations. The genetic results have been compared with the published documentation of the burial books of the Cocepción Church from the second half of the XVIIIth century, where some coincidence about the origins of these populations in places like Angola, Senegal or Cape Verde.
