Based on his own research and on the publications of many other researchers, Charles Edward Banks had, by the time of his death in 1931, collected evidence or clues for the English origin of more than half of the English families which had come to New England during the years of the Great Migration.

The entries for the 2885 emigrants are arranged by county, and within each county alphabetically by parish. Each entry also includes the name of the ship on which the emigrant arrived (when known), the first town of residence in New England and the reference supporting the proposed English origin.

This volume was compiled several years after Banks died, by Elijah Ellsworth Brownell. He gathered the supporting references from the notes and manuscripts compiled by Banks. These references come in two varieties. First, there are citations to various published sources, such as genealogical periodicals, the genealogical column in the Boston Transcript, family genealogies and the like.

Note: This book is also among the four volumes in our popular New England Migration - The Collected Works of Charles Edward Banks, which is available at 40% OFF the regular retail price of the individual books if purchased separately.
Second, there are many entries with the simple reference "Banks Mss." These refer to the English records collected by Banks on his visits to England. These references must be handled with great care, and should be used only as clues. They may represent nothing more than the presence of the surname of the emigrant in a given parish.

The entries are indexed in four different ways, by surname, by English parish, by ship and by New England town.
