Emigration from Waterford

Emigration from Waterford dates back to the 1650s when
Waterford people began to settle in Newfoundland. There was a small trade-related
emigration to Bordeaux, France and other continental locations also in the
1600s.
Larger numbers emigrated to Canada in the period 1800 to
1850. Emigration increased dramatically at the time of the Great Famine
with most emigrants leaving for America and England.
The population of County Waterford declined by 20% during
the period 1841 to 1851 mostly through emigration. 50,000 people left the
area at that time.
