INTRODUCTION

Pursuant to a letter from John Robinson, secretary of the Treasury, December 8, 1773, customs officials in England and Scotland supplied lists of persons who took passage on ships leaving Great Britain during the years 1773-1776, giving names, ages, quality, occupation, employment, former residence, reasons for emigrating, and the name of the vessel and master. These records, somewhat incomplete as now preserved in the Public Record Office of Great Britain under the classification Treasury Class 47, Bundles 9-12, contain many thousands of names and important information on a remarkable 'population movement which was of great significance to America and of arresting attention to the landed and manufacturing interests and the government of Great Britain They have been printed in part in The New England Historical and Genealogical Register (1908- 1911).

The largest group consisted of indented servants bound for New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia and the next largest, of emigrants sailing from ports in northern England to Nova Scotia, Virginia, and New York. The emigration practically ceased after September, 1775. the movement from Scotland was due chiefly to the oppressive rent policy of the Highland proprietors and middlemen of the region extending from Ayr County to the Shetland Islands. A traveler on an emigrant ship in 1774 wrote: "It is needless to make any comment on the conduct of our Highland and Island proprietors. It is self evident what. consequences must be produced in time from such numbers of subjects being driven from the country." Should levies be again necessary,. the recruiting drum may long be at a loss to procure such soldiers as are now aboard this vessel."
