The Great Migration



North America received thousands of Irish immigrants from the English-ruled Ireland during the 19th century. Once in the United States or what would become Canada, these immigrants quickly contributed to the ongoing settling and industrialization processes. The largest influx of Irish settlers occurred with Great Potato Famine of the late 1840s. An exhaustive examination of immigrant and passenger lists has shown many early immigrants bearing the surname of Glaasaune: Thomas Gleason who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1762; followed by John in 1766; Nelly Gleeson settled in Canada in 1840; Martin Gleeson settled in New York in 1850.
