About This Collection

This collection consists of two published books on emigrants from England to America. Most of the individuals in this collection were indentured servants who left England between the late 17th century and mid 18th century. Details on each book are provided below.

A List of Emigrants from England to America, 1718-1759

This work by Marion Kaminkow is a transcription of approximately 3,000 indenture forms pertaining to individuals who bound themselves into servitude in the American plantations from 1718 to 1759. These records were filed at the Guildhall in London. In general, the following details are usually provided for each servant: name, parish and county of origin, age, occupation, name of agent, length of service, and destination in the colonies.

A List of Emigrants from England to America, 1682-1692

This work by Michael Ghirelli is a transcription of approximately 1500 records from the Lord Mayor's Waiting Books. From 1682 to 1692 this source was used to record the names of indentured servants or private citizens traveling on passes from England to America. These records give, where appropriate, the person's place of residence in England, age, date of indenture, length of service, name of master, destination in the colonies, and, for an under-age servant, the name of a witness (usually a relative).
