Plymouth from Emigration:

is at last now documented by this painting.

At least as far back as the famous ‘Mayflower’ voyage (1620), Plymouth citizens played a central role in ‘exporting’ migrants.
In other ports migrants were often robbed, Plymouthians were notably kind, generous, helpful
They created the best migrant depot in Britain.
Tens of thousands of migrants passed through Plymouth particularly during the 18 th and 19 th century.
