A Brief Synopsis of the Irish in the St. Thomas Sub Registration Districts 1k-1x of Liverpool Civil Parish in the 1851 Census, their Counties of Origin in Ireland and Occupations held

This may be the final destination for a few, a stop on the way to search for work for others and a starting point of a journey abroad for many more.
