Emigrants sent under the Petworth Emigration Committee: an alphabetical list of sending parishes organized by county
Compiled by Leigh Lawson

For those researchers who are interested in the history of a specific parish, Leigh Lawson has begun compiling lists of assisted emigrants sorted specifically by parish.

This list is of parishes which sent emigrants on ships chartered by the Petworth Emigration Committee 1832 – 1837 and on other commercial ships after 1837. Leigh is compiling further lists for Hampshire.
