Ship James Monroe Passenger List - Liverpool to New York 1820

Ship James Monroe Passenger List

Liverpool to New York, 5 April 1820

transcribed by Joe Beine





This ship departed from Liverpool and arrived at the port of New York on 4 April 1820; the passenger list is dated 5 April; Master: James Rogers

NOTES: The passenger list is marked 5 "Feby" 1820 with "[April]" written above "Feby." But the list appears among the lists for the 2nd Quarter of 1820 (April, May, June) in the State Department Transcripts series, and it is marked 5 April by the National Archives on its title page in M237-1. Also, the State Dept. Transcripts refer to this ship as a "schooner" - this is believed to be an error.

Information about the ship's arrival from the Montreal Gazette (Wednesday, April 19, 1820): "The Packet ship James Monroe arrived at New York the 4th instant, in 30 days from Liverpool, and brings English papers of the 4th of March. In this vessel came general FRANCISCO VIVES, the Spanish ambassador, near the United States, who has been so long expected." (thanks to Harry Dodsworth for providing this additional material from the Montreal Gazette)
