Just to complete my previous post, here are some more family reconstitutions for your perusal.

(See  http://wp.me/p4SlVj-zv for more information about this ‘revolutionary’ demographic technique. Scroll down the link to the “Introduction” of Professor Wrigley’s book).

Earl Grey’s Irish Famine Orphans (24): More family reconstitutions 

Some more orphan family reconstitutions

I used to own a number of books on historical demography–by T.G. Hollingsworth, E.A.Wrigley, R. S Schofield at al.–from the days when I taught early modern European history. Students were always interested in ‘sex and death’. But wouldn’t you know it? These were the very books I gave away when I was trying to reduce my library. I thought I’d never go back to that stuff. They would be very useful now: I could use them to tell you more about the family reconstitution method used by historical demographers. Nonetheless, such are the wonders of the modern world that all we need do, is type ‘family reconstitution method’ into Google. And lo, there is a link to E.A. Wrigley’s English Population History from Family Reconstitution 1580-1837, CUP, 1997. Large sections are available to read for free. We can see what he has to say about family reconstitution in his introduction.  https://books.google.com.au/books?hl=en&lr=&id=oFQBvre0xoMC&oi=fnd&pg=PR12&dq=family+reconstitution+method&ots=6JefQO9N8e&sig=nDXcqQbL9gHov9s_pTxphVUwvng#v=onepage&q=family%20reconstitution%20method&f=false  It may be more than you ever want to know.

Anyways, here are some more reconstituted orphan family charts from my original files. Click on the image to make it larger.

Finally, a couple of graphs which put the orphans into a larger immigration context. They were drawn a good while ago.

As always, my sincere thanks to the kind people who sent me information and photographs to use. The photograph at the head of the post is of Catherine Elliott nee Moriarty from Dingle, County Kerry. She is with her family in Queensland c. 1886. See Kay Caball’s The Kerry Girls.

The link to the contents of my blog is at http://wp.me/p4SlVj-oE  I made a mess of posts relating to the orphans’ voyage. There are three at 7(a), 7(b) and 7(c). 7 (c) is the substantive one.
