British Emigrants in Bondage is the definitive record of 48,000 felons carried from the jails of England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland to help populate colonial America. For this CD, Peter Wilson Coldham, England¿s foremost authority on 17th- and 18th-century emigration to America, abstracted from every surviving record the names and histories of all those sentenced in England and Ireland to be transported to America for their alleged crimes. Also included on this CD are a separate section on transported Irish felons and runaways; a history of the British transportation system; an exhaustive account of the records used in this work; and a complete list of convict ships that sailed to America between 1671 and 1788.
