Ther following table was compiled from data assembled by Ancestry.com from their transcription of the microfilm of passenger ships arriving from foreign ports at the Port of New York from 1851-1891. Besides the usual caveat about spelling, there are inconsistencies in recording the country of origin (i.e. Ireland; Ireland, Great Brtiain; Great Brtiain; England). While New York was the largest single port of entry for European immigrants, there were others such as Boston; however, despite these shortcomings, the table gives a general idea of where immigrants with our surname were coming from in the last half of the 19th century.
