'Disencumbering our crowded places': theory and practice of estate emigration schemes in mid-nineteenth century Ireland
Duffy, Patrick J.
The schemes of assisted emigration which were adopted by private owners of landed estates in Ireland in the middle decades of the nineteenth century grew out of a discourse of political economy which was heavily influenced by the ideas on overpopulation of Thomas Malthus and his disciples. Many of their arguments which were rehearsed in the 1820s debates on emigration, echo through the correspondence on estate emigration in the mid nineteenth century.
