Emigrants from England to North America After 1776

The Public Record Office in Kew, England holds records regarding emigration to Canada, and some for the United States of America. The chief sources of information are the records of the Colonial Office, and those of the Board of Trade and the Treasury.

Modern records of the Board of Trade can give assistance in tracing emigrants. The sea going Passenger Lists, Outwards (BT 27), from 1890 to 1960, contain the names of the persons leaving the United Kingdom from ports within England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland for final destinations outside of Europe and the Mediterranean Sea.

The lists are arranged under the names of the ports of departure. Many lists earlier in date than 1890 were destroyed by order of the Board in 1900, but a few escaped destruction and are included in this series.

Records of the Colonial Office
Colonial Office records mainly deal with the North American colonies which later became Canada. The following records are available:

  • Colonial Office: Emigration Original Correspondence, 1817 to 1851 (CO 384 ) includes letters from settlers, or prospective settlers
  • Entry Books, 1815 to 1833 (CO 385 ) has names of settlers
  • Land and Emigration Commission papers, 1840 to 1876 (CO 386 ) also has names.
  • Colonies, General: Original Correspondence (CO 323 )give some details of land grants and applications.
  • Entry Books (CO 324 , 1662 to 1872, and CO 381 , 1835 to 1872) give some details of land grants and applications.
The following correspondence for North America has emigration records:
  • CO 6 , British North America Original Correspondence, 1816 to 1868
  • CO 326 , General Registers, 1633 to 1849
  • CO 327 , British North America Emigration Registers, 1850 to 1863
  • CO 328 , British North America General Registers (including emigration 1864 to 1868)
  • CO 329 , British North America Registers of Out-letters, 1872 to 1880
Records of the Treasury
Correspondence of the Treasury, to 1920, is in T 1 , Treasury: Papers. Registers in T 2 , T 3 , and T 4 , and indexes in T 108 , show colonial business handled by the Treasury, and include references to individuals in the colonies or planning to emigrate.

The following records contain references to America.

  • Treasury: General Out-letter Books, 1668 to 1920 (T 27 )
  • Minute Books, 1667 to 1870 (T 29 and T 99 )
  • Entry Books of Royal Warrants, 1667 to 1857 (T 52 )

  • Entry Books of Warrants concerning Appointments, Crown Leases and other, 1667 to 1849 (T 54)
  • Order Books, 1667 to 1831 (T 60 )
Records of the Foreign Office
Passport Registers, 1795 to 1898 (FO 610 ) contain entries, in chronological and numerical order, of the names, destinations and referees of all those who applied for passports. Indexes of names in FO 611 give the date of issue and serial number of each passport (1851 to 1862, and 1874 to 1898).

Records of the Board of Trade
Board of Trade Outwards Passenger Lists, 1890 to 1960 (BT 27 ) are lists of passengers leaving the United Kingdom by sea, arranged by date and port of departure. The name, age, occupation and place of residence of each passenger is given. Lists earlier than 1890 no longer exist.

Registers of Passenger Lists, 1906 to 1951, are held in BT 32 . Before 1920 they give, under the different ports, the names of ships and the month of arrival and departure. After 1920 the exact date of arrival and departure is recorded. Before 1908 the registers relate only to the ports of Southampton, Bristol and Weymouth.
