A Release of Roman Catholic families preparing to emigrate from the counties of Carlow and Wexford in the insuing Spring — dated (New) Ross, 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. The condition of the filmed lists make some names difficult to decipher (eg. folds in paper) but every endeavour has been made to accurately record the names. The names are extracted as found and are not in alphabetical order, however related groups appear to be listed in close proximity. The "search in page" feature in your browser can be used, but be aware of spelling variations.
All the men were listed as Farmers with a few additionally listed as Mechanics, so the occupation column has been omitted. Any other occupation will be noted in the name field. The field indicating number of family members accompanying will be headed with the letter F and I have grouped the names in "10s" to help differentiate between identical names.
Be aware, that a few families appear to be recorded on both the Protestant and Roman Catholic lists, for example:—James Rynehart with 11, James Downey with 18, Abm Miller with 6, Miles Keegan with 9, Luke Molton with 7 and some others.

Protestant families | Roman Catholic families

The Roman Catholic families which compose this list are generally respectable Farmers, have procured tolerably good accomodations for sobriety, industry & good conduct, but as Farmers & workmen they possess the want of order, neatness and economy which generally designates the religious persuasion to which they belong. The Protestant emigrants look on their being accompanied by these families with a dissatisfied and jealous eye. Most of the Catholic families are quite unable to bear the expenses of the passage to Quebec and providing for their subsistence on arriving at their destination and are unsetling [sic] themselves under the idea of the British Government furnishing a conveyance to the colonies.
