The Methodist Review of 1826 mentions Brother William Winnard in Culpeper, Virginia - William Winnard's marriage took place in Culpeper. I wonder if there was a movement of Methodists from England to America in the early 1800s which could be pinpointed ?

Thank you. I will see if I can find any thing on the Methodist. Would you know if there is any way to look up ships that left England in the early 1800s.

Finding Arrival Records Online - Ellis Island

This has a list of sources including some before Ellis Island became the reception terminal. Castle Garden predates Ellis Island immigration records. Edit. The link doesn't work. Search for the above title.

It will be hit & miss searching for early 19thC records. Articles on U.S. National Archives website listed above,  National Archives at Kew and Liverpool Museum Maritime Archive information sheets give background.

Earliest records for both Ellis Island and Castle Garden begin in 1820 - since William Winnard arrived 1817 there are no passenger lists to view.

Sorry I have not got back to you. Thank you for your reply. I have not found any thing on the Methodist. I may never find were he came from in England but I will not give up. Is there English records I may be able to look at. Thank you.
