by Helen Allinson
Between 1820-1850, thousands of poor families set out for America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand assisted by their parishes. The book highlights the deprivations of the long voyage, stories of survival in the harshest of conditions, and explains how the Kent Agricultural Labourers Union helped Kentish farm workers and their families to emigrate to New Zealand during the 1870s.
196 pages, indexed and illustrated. Appendices of emigrants, their parishes and the ships.
