Irish Individuals in New York City Almshouse

In the 1800s many poor Irish left Ireland and sailed to America or Canada. Some ended up impoverished in a City Almshouse or Poorhouse. I have extracted the names of 956 Irish immigrants who ended up in the New York City Almshouse between 1820 and 1830. This includes the name of the ship they sailed on (when known)

But first a bit about the Almshouses --- In the early 1800's port cities in the USA bore the burden of immigration. By the time they arrived, so many immigrants were tired, hungry and poor they ended up in the City Almshouse. This meant the citizens had to take care of them. At first the citizens of the city asked the Mayors for funds to support the poor. Eventually they asked the states, and by mid-century some states (PA, NY, MA) set up State agencies to deal with the issue. Eventually, beginning in the 1880's, the Federal Government nationalized the programs.

Dating back to the colonial era, New York City assumed responsibility for its citizens who were destitute, sick, homeless, or otherwise unable to care for themselves. The city maintained an almshouse, various hospitals, and a workhouse on Blackwell's Island (now called Roosevelt Island) for the poor.

Lorine's Note: There are 2 pages for each name in this ledger. I have only copied part of the left hand page. There is more information on the microfilm, including Captain's Name, Owner's Name, Date of Bond, Sureties, Date Discharged, Death Date, Remarks, Bonded, Commuted & Total. For example, under date 1820 March 11 - Elizabeth Kennedy age 34 is listed as having died June 14, 1820; her daughter Mary Ann died Nov. 5, 1820

It is important to note that the date given in these records is not the date of arrival in America or Canada but rather the date the individual entered the Almshouse.
