The main focus of this thesis is on Quakers as individuals rather than on Quakerism, the institution. It was important, therefore to identify as many of the early Quaker migrants as possible, to discover their origins, their occupations, their reasons for miigration and the depth of their commitment to their Quaker meetings. Appendix One sets out the biographical data on which an analysis of these factors became possible.
