About Persons of Quality Original Lists

This informative database contains lists of emigrants from Great Britain to the United States from 1600-1700. The individuals include emigrants, religious exiles, political rebels, men serving prison terms, children, and women. The records include, where possible, the person's age, where they were from, the name of the ship they travelled in, the destination, and the year. Search this database if your ancestors include early colonial emigrants.
