Like some of my lot, your great-grandparents may have actually set out for US/Canada,  VIA   Liverpool, and stopped-off at Liverpool/Birkenhead...and settled there.

    "Handbook on Irish Genealogy"   by Dónal Begley.....     
        ( Heraldic  Artists Ltd) :

This gives a copy of some lists, and mentions that some shipping lines' own lists survive in the British Museum. There are also some lists in the National Archives, Washington, and US papers/periodicals.

Thanks, Suey...Just wondered. The only local Sturgeon I could find (1850s) was a land-steward, but he was listed as "living in England"...which doesn't help much.   Don't suppose any of yours were  'absentee landlords(or stewards)'...?

By the way -I notice the name Sturgeon among the list below : Any info on this ? I had a Sturgeon relative in Ireland...but can't be found.
