Strong, R. (2017) Victorian Christianity and emigrant voyages to British Colonies c.1840 - c.1914. Oxford University Press.

Abstract

Examines the varieties of Christianity adhered to by most British and Irish emigrants in the nineteenth century

Considers how these Christian emigrants used their religion to help them through the often difficult experiences of the long voyages from Britain to their new homes in British colonies

Explores the ways the various British Churches attempted to minister to emigrants; and particularly the Church of England as it developed an large international structured emigration chaplaincy beginning in the 1840s

Argues that their Christian faith, in all its denominations, was of fundamental importance to British and Irish emigrants in this period
