Persons of Quality, religious exiles, and others who left England 1600-1700

Updated: Feb 3, 2019

Perhaps one of the most interesting (and long) book titles ever! Let's break it down:

"Original Lists of...

  • persons of quality;

  • emigrants;

  • religious exiles;

  • political rebels;

  • serving men sold for a term of years;

  • apprentices;

  • children stolen;

  • maidens pressed;

  • and others

...who went from Great Britain to the American Plantations, 1600-1700 : with their ages and the names of the ships in which they embarked, and other interesting particulars; from mss. preserved in the State Paper Department of Her Majesty's Public Record Office, England"

by Hotten, John Camden, 1832-1873, Published 1874.

Certainly there are many of our forefathers named in this book. If you find any of yours, we'd love to hear about it in the comments below. (Alternate Link)
