1751 Speedwell

Captain: Joseph Wilson 
From: Rotterdam 18 May 1751 
Arrival: Halifax10 or 21 Jul 1751 

Left with 229 passengers. Arrived with 212 passengers. Seventeen people died during the voyage (7.4 %). 

A large number of the passengers on this ship came from northern districts of Germany and Netherlands. The names on the reconstructed list have been rearranged according to their place of origin from the southwest to northeast.

It is not possible to identify all the people on the ship because often a family would take an older parent or step children who are not easy to identify in the available sources, however all those in each household were listed under "Freight". The first number represents the number of adult males, the second number adult females, the third number represents the half-freights (children between 4-14), the fourth number represents children under four who were free, the fifth number represents the number of freights that were owed for passage costs, and the fifth number represents the total number of people in the household. 

The place of origin was generally the state, province, or city-state, however in some cases a town was listed (or the town might have been a small duchy or independent town in 1753). The actual towns of origin of these people will be verified in the future and updated on this site as time permits.
