The Complete Book of Emigrants, 1607-1776

Introduction, Bondage

Between 1614 and 1775 some 50,000 Englishmen were sentenced by legal
process to be transported to the American colonies. With notably few
exceptions their names and the record of their trial have survived in
public records together with much other information which enables us to
plot the story of their unhappy and unwilling passage to America. These
records are now combined and condensed in this volume to form the
largest single collection of transatlantic passenger lists to be found
during the earliest period of emigration.

***One of the gentlemen above is probably the father of Rachel Rashfield.
