Migration of the Manich family to the New World and Oceana
In the 18th and 19th centuries, thousands of Irish families
fled an Ireland
that was forcibly held through by England
through its imperialistic policies. A large portion of these families crossed the Atlantic to the shores of North America. The fate of these families depended on when they immigrated and the political allegiances they showed after they arrived. Settlers that arrived before the American War of Independence
may have moved north to Canada at the war's conclusion as United Empire Loyalists. Such Loyalists were granted land along the St. Lawrence River and the Niagara Peninsula. Those that fought for the revolution occasionally gained the land that the fleeing Loyalist vacated. After this period, free land and an agrarian lifestyle were not so easy to come by in the East. So when seemingly innumerable Irish immigrants arrived during the Great Potato Famine
of the late 1840s, free land for all was out of the question. These settlers were instead put to work building railroads, coal mines, bridges, and canals. Whenever they came, Irish settlers made an inestimable contribution to the building of the New World. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the Irish name Manich or a variant listed above, including: Jane Managan settled in Maryland in 1775; Betty Managhan settled in New York in 1850;Daniel Managhan settled in Philadelphia in 1842; Antony Manahan settled in Quebec in 1849.
