The Original Lists of Persons of Quality; Emigrants; Religious Exiles; Political Rebels; Serving Men Sold for a Term of Years; Apprentices; Children Stolen; Maidens Pressed; And Others Who Went From Great Britain To The American Plantation, 1600-1700, With Their Ages, the Localities Where They Formerly Lived in the Mother Country, the Names of the Ships in which They Embarked, and Other Interesting Particulars - John Camden Hotten.
The title says it all! This extensive volume of transcriptions offers a collection of the names of the emigrant ancestors of many thousands of American families. In the ample introduction, Mr. Hotten states his "object is simply and briefly to point out some of the causes which contributed to the early emigration of English families to America; and then to estimate the practical value of the contents of the present volume as a means of assistance in making genealogical researches in the mother country." Transcribed records include: a multitude of ships' passenger lists; indexes of the Patent Rolls; lists of the living and dead in Virginia (February 16, 1623); musters of the inhabitants of Virginia; lists of convicted rebels (Monmouth Rebellion of 1685) sent to the Barbadoes and other plantations in America; Barbadoes Parish registers with birth and death records, lists of inhabitants, and landowners; and much, much more. A seventy-two-page full name index greatly enhances the value of this outstanding genealogical reference book.
