Outbound Ships Passenger Lists

Ships sailing from Canada and USA to England, Europe, North America & Other Ports

Neither U.S. A. nor Canada maintained outbound ships passenger lists.

Ships Passenger Lists to United Kingdom

All ships carrying passengers in or out of any British port were required by law to deposit an official passenger list with the relevant port authorities

The records for all these ship passengers travelling between 1890 and 1960 survives within the collection of original British Board of Trade passenger lists. The only place they can be seen is at the Public Record Office in Kew, England.

Ships Passenger Lists Canada to USA

There are no archived Ships Passenger Lists for ships sailing from ports in Canada to USA. However, some partial lists do exist. These can be found in the Almshouse Records of New York City from 1819-1855.

These records indicate for each person admitted to the Almshouse the name of the ship they sailed on, the port of departure and a year of admission. Sometimes an exact date of arrival is noted. The Almshouse records from 1819-1855 include Age, Place of Birth, Ship Name, Where From, Captain's Name and Owner's Name. For individuals recorded in Almshouse Records 1855-1858 the information includes ship name, date of sailing, and ports of departure and arrival.

For example, the Almshouse Records indicate that the Riley family from Ireland (Patrick age 30, Ann age 28 and children Martha age 2 all born Ireland plus 2 week old Ann born in New York) sailed on the Felix (or Phoenix) from St. Johns Canada to New York sometime before 23 October 1819.

At this time you must browse the Almshouse Records to find all the ships from Canada to New York, but a Ships From Canada to New York Project is underway to organize the names by ship name and port of departure
