THE 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, the Localities Where They Formerly Lived in the Mother Country, the Names of the Ships in Which They Embarked, and Other Interesting Particulars. John Camden Hotten. Paperback, (1874), repr. 2012, Index, 604 pp.
Few ships' passenger lists have survived from the seventeenth century, and those documents that can be found provide only a small sampling of English-speaking immigrants to America during this period. This work, originally published in 1874, and still the most important list of English-speaking immigrants ever been published, was transcribed from records in London by Mr. Hotten. The combined lists contain approximately 11,000 individuals, their ages, former places of residence, and the names of the ships on which they sailed.
