This list is an aggregate list from several sources, perhaps the best is the article "The Falmouth Passengers" by Andrew B.W. MacEwen, published in "The Island Magazine", Number 10, Fall-Winter, 1981, pages 12-19. It is not our desire to go into the detail that Mr. MacEwen provided in his wonderful article, but to present only the passengers identified. Please refer to Mr. MacEwen's article for further information. This issue should still be available from the Prince Edward Island Museum and Heritage Foundation (PEIMHF).

Note that this is, by necessity, a reconstructed list, as no passenger list, per say is extant for the Falmouth, and is based in large part upon the Rev. Drummond's Journals, and P.E.I. Family Histories.
