The British Register of Emigration
This information was collected by customs agents. Bailyn uses this information for his analysis, noting that it is an incomplete source of information.
The Register contained information about individuals emigrating from this country. This country was the third major source of emigration.
Emigration from this country to the American colonies consisted mostly of young men who were traveling alone.
This was one of the dominant ports for emigration out of the British Isles. Close to half of the total number of emigrants listed in the Register stated that they came from here.
This was an area from which over 900 emigrants listed in the Register came from. Some of these individuals settled in Nova Scotia.
These people sold their labor for an agreed upon amount of time in exchange for transportation to the colonies.
