The object of the following essay is to see what light a well-maintained estate record can shed on the nature and management of a subsidised emigration policy in the frantic decade before the Famine. The intention also is to interrogate the wide-ranging popular attitude to emigration, especially assisted emigration, which crystallised soon after the Famine.
