Ivanhoe Passenger List

Liverpool to New York
Arrived May 10, 1848

Captain: William Edwards

The Ivanhoe, captained by William Edwards, arrived at port of New York from Liverpool, England, on May 10, 1848. The Ivanhoe was one of dozens of ships that carried thousands of immigrants to America in the late 1840s. The breakdown of passengers on board the Ivanhoe is as follows. Irish: 174, English: 169, Welsh: 32, Scott: 5, Other: 8, Total: 388. There were ten (first) cabin passengers, thirteen second cabin passengers, while the bulk of immigrants (358) traveled steerage class. A variety of occupations were represented by those on board. They included, doctor, lawyer, school master, blacksmith, miner, farmer, brick layer, engineer, shoe maker, milliner, lace maker, weaver, hair cutter, printer, cartwright, and missionary. Most of the individuals who traveled as cabin passengers were listed as merchants, gentlemen, and ladies.

Many of the immigrant ships departing Britain in the late 1840s carried Irish immigrants who were fleeing the deadly potato famine that would eventually kill millions of their countrymen. Given the date (1848) and with 174 Irish passengers on board, the Ivanhoe definitely qualifies as one of the so-called "Irish famine ships."

Mary Thomas (my great-great-great grandmother), her children John (my great-great grandfather), Thomas, Charlotte, and Jeremiah, and John's wife Elizabeth and their baby daughter Elizabeth (page 8), were among only 32 Welsh passengers on the Ivanhoe. The Thomas family was heading to Hyde Park/ Scranton, in Lackawanna Co., Pennsylvania, where John had secured work in one of the area's busy coal mines.

Below you will find a complete transcription of the Ivanhoe's passenger manifest, filed by Captain Edwards with the Port of New York on May 12, 1848, two days after the ship arrived in port. The nine-page list is presented in order. Some of the names and occupations of the passengers are difficult to read, and these entries are accompanied by a question mark (?). The Ivanhoe's manifest can be found on microfilm at the National Archives in Washington D.C.
