Summary
"The Maritime Provinces of Canada -- New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island -- were a convenient destination for tens of thousands of Irish immigrants between 1749 and 1852. Functioning as the narrow end of a funnel through which thousands dispersed widely across the North American continent, the Maritimes offered easy access and cheap fares, beckoning immigrants from Ireland's catchment areas along the waterways of Dublin, Londonderrry, and Cork. In all, there is documentation on about 1,050 voyages between Ireland and the Maritimes, and in this book Mr. Punch provides a chronological list of the voyages, gives names of the vessels, their port and date of departure as well as their port of arrival, indicates the number of passengers, sometimes their names and destination, and adds a great variety of information concerning passengers and crew and the voyages themselves"--Publisher's description
