Protestant Emigrants to Canada

Protestant families preparing to emigrate from the counties of Carlow and Wexford in the coming Spring — dated NewRoss, 29th November 1817

These lists of Protestant and Roman Catholic emigrants from counties Carlow and Wexford intending to emigrate to British America (via Quebec) list only the head-of-household, with the numbers of persons within each family group. The lists were compiled at the end of November 1817 and indicated the intention of those entered, to sail in the Spring of 1818 as of that date. Some may have decided against emigration and others may have decided to be included

Protestant families

The Protestant families of whom this list is composed are remarkably sober, hard working and well conducted, can procure the most satisfactory recommendations and have generally some of their branches numbers of militia corps, many of these families possess considerably more prospect than sufficient to remove them and are fixed in their determination of joining those relatives and friends who have so happily settled in Upper Canada upon lands granted by the British Government within these last two years.

Many other Protestant families of most respectable character, tho unable to bear the expense of a removal are unsettling themselves under the idea of being assisted with a free passage to British America and anxiously look forward to being informed if their hopes on this subject shall be realized. Most of the men of these families capable of bearing arms in the Rebellion of 1798, were actively employed in the defence of their country and proved at the risk of their lives an unalterable attachment to the legal Government for which they enjoyed the blessings of liberty.
