Emigrants to New Zealand 1839 - 42

In 1996 whilst completing my Local History Certificate at The University of Sussex, one of the modules covered Poverty and Emigration and we received many handouts to illustrate the text of that particular lecture. One of those handouts was a list of 106 Emigrants to New Zealand under the New Zealand Companys scheme for Free and assisted passages 1839-42 ; surprisingly much of this impetus towards emigration came from the poor law authorities themselves.

Here is that list;
