Passenger list for Corsair's 1830 Prince Edward Island immigrants

+6 votes

Corsair sailed from Greenock, Scotland, on 8 April 1830 carrying 206 tenant farmers for the Tracadie feudal estate of the MacDonald clan on Prince Edward Island.  Many of these Catholics were from northern Ireland and had been recruited by Rev. John MacDonald during his missionary work in the Glasgow slums.  Following Corsair's arrival in Charlottetown on 19 May 1830, the settlers were transported up the Hillsborough River to develop the Tracadie estate.  Although passenger lists are available for Alexander bringing the Catholic MacDonald clan to Tracadie in 1772, and for Lucy and Jane in 1790, I have been unable to locate a similar list for the 1830 voyage of Corsair.  Has anyone else found a listing of Corsair's passengers?

Hi Neighbour!  

I had been practically living in theshiplists.com  consider NS and NB as ports as I know through my research I noted many of the people had notations  traveling by CNR. Or travelling with family upon arrival.  And did not remain here, the NS archives holds the record books for St Peter's  which was the active RC church until 1801 however they married buried and blessed people until 1830. I am in those reels a lot.  

Good luck! And if you need a person on the ground I am a yodel away!
