!830 - FROM P.E.I. - There is no true passenger list for the ship "CORSAIR" which Mick came on. We know it arrived 19 may 1830 from Greenock, Scotland where it left on 8 April 1830, with 206 settlers and the Catholic Rev. John MacDonald, but passenger names were not given in the newspaper. Settled Johnson's River, these are further mentioned in "The Cradle of Conferderation" by Lorne C. Callbeck pg. 136.

Also: PEI Register 25 May, 1830, page 3 - "'Corsair', Captain Hamilton, arrived 19 May from Greenock with 206 settlers; Corsair sailed from Greenock on 8 April." [GC].

206 Passengers, Catholics sent out by Rev. John MacDonald, Settled Johnston's River. These are further mentioned in "The Cradle of Confederation", by Lorne C. Callbeck, Pg. 136. Also referenced in Nat. Archives, R5846-O-X-E, Mary C. Brehaut. Prince Edward Island Register, Tuesday May 25th 1830 -

Two hundred and six settlers arrived on the Corsair from Greenock on Wednesday last. The bulk of them have proceeded up the Hillsborough, about ten miles, to be located on the south bank, above Johnston’s River, on the property of the Rev. John M’Donald. They are chiefly natives of the North of Ireland, and apparently seem pleased with their change. Two births occurred on the passage and one since their arrival. One of the crew was lost off one of the yards in a gale.
