Ireland experienced a dramatic decrease in its population during the late 19th century. This was in a great measure, a response to England's imperialistic policies. Hunger and disease took the lives of many Irish people and many more chose to leave their homeland to escape such hunger and disease. North America with its promise of work, freedom, and land was an extremely popular destination for Irish families. For those families that survived the journey, all three of these things were were often attained through much hard work and perseverance. Research into early immigration and passenger lists revealed many immigrants bearing the name O'Lawlor: Margaret Lawler settled in Maryland in 1741; Darby Lawler settled in Boston in 1766 along with Betsy; Luke, David, Hugh, James, John, Michael, Patrick and William Lawler, all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860.
