Slavane Spelling Variations



People who were accounted for by scribes and church officials often had their name recorded many different ways because pronunciation was the only guide those scribes and church officials had to go by. This resulted in the problem of one person's name being recorded under several different variations, creating the illusion of more than one person. Among the many spelling variations of the surname Slavane that are preserved in archival documents are Slavin, Slaving, Slevin, Sleving, Slevan, Sleavin and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great mass of Ireland's native population left the island in the 19th century, seeking relief from various forms of social, religious, and economic discrimination. This Irish exodus was primarily to North America. If the migrants survived the long ocean journey, many unfortunately would find more discrimination in the colonies of British North America and the fledgling United States of America. These newly arrived Irish were, however, wanted as a cheap source of labor for the many large agricultural and industrial projects that were essential to the development of what would become two of the wealthiest nations in the western world. Early immigration and passenger lists indicate many people bearing the Slavane name: Bernard, Edward, Hugh, James, John, Patrick, Peter, and William Slaven who arrived in Philadelphia between 1842 and 1862; Charles, Cornelius, Danial, Edward, Francis, Hugh, John, Michael, Patrick, Thomas and William Slavin all arrived in Philadelphia between 1808 and 1864.
