From the 1st Chapter of the Constitution of Vermont:
no male person, born in this country, or brought from over sea, ought to be holden by law, to serve any person, as a servant, slave or apprentice, after he arrives to the age of twenty-one Years, nor female, in like manner, after she arrives to the age of eighteen years, unless they are bound by their own consent
Seems to me that still allows for males to be enslaved before the age of 21 and females before the age of 18. So yes, it was a partial ban. Unless you don't consider enslavement of children to actually be enslavement.
