Date: 1768

Source of Information: "A List of Emigrant Ministers to America" by Fothergill

Immigrant: The Rev. Robert Yancey

Various sources including the one cited above make reference to a Robert Yancey emigrating to America in 1768. This was the Reverend Robert Yancey of Louisa County Virginia who had gone to England to be ordained and returned to Virginia to work in the parishes of Tillotson and Trinity. He is, therefore, not a true immigrant.

Mary Yanley*, age 3, died on voyage 17 August 1834

Date: June 1840

Name of Ship: New York

Source of Information: Index to Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York M261 Roll 103

Immigrant: T. Yancee*, age 20, born in Great Britain

Date: 22 September 1845

Place: Port of New York

Name of Ship: Tennessee (Coming from Great Britain)

Source of Information: Index to Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York M261 Roll 103

Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York M237 Roll 59

Immigrants:

Thomas Yancy*, age 40, born in Ireland

John Yancy*, Age 11, born in Ireland

M[ichael?] Yancy*, age 5, born in Ireland

William Yancy*, age [7?], born in Ireland

*The name is clearly written as YANCY on the Index to the National Archive Passenger List Records, but when the actual passenger list was checked it would seem that the name may not actually have been YANCY. The spelling is not clear, and although the name certainly begins and ends with a "Y", it would seem that the name may be something like "Yearney" instead of "Yancy".


Date: 12 July 1846

Place: Port of New York

Name of Ship: New York (from Liverpool)

Source of Information: Index to Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York M261 Roll 103

Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York M237 Roll 63

Immigrants: James Yancey* , age 28, laborer, born in Great Britain

*The name is clearly written as YANCEY on the Index to the National Archive Pasenger List Records, and at first glance of the original document - that appears to be correct. But upon taking a close look at the way the surname was written, noting that the first letter of the surname does NOT go below the line (as a Y or J usually would), it would seem that the first letter in the surname could very well have been either a 'T' or an 'L' - the name possibly being TANCEY/TANSEY or LANCEY - both valid names of Great Britain.


Date: 6 April 1847

Place: Port of New York

Name of Ship: Zenobia (From Liverpool)

Source of Information: "Famine Immigrants"

Immigrants: James Yansy*, age 15, laborer

*Although recorded as "YANSY" in the "Famine Immigrants" - the name does NOT appear to be recorded on the National Archives Index as YANCY or YANSY. I have yet to check the orginal document.


Date: 1850

Place: Port of New Orleans

Source of Information:

Immigrants: J. Yancey* from Ireland, age 24

*This information came from an Index to the Passenger Lists and the actual passenger list has not yet been checked

Source of Information: Index to Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at Boston M265 Roll 281

Immigrants: Dennis Yancey, age 24, of Ireland, Servant


Date: 16th October 1868

Place: Port of Baltimore, Maryland

Immigrants: D.H. Yancey*, age 24 (nationality U.S.), Occupation: Lawyer

* This is Dalton Huger Yancey, son of the famous William Lowndes Yancey, seccesionist and orator of the South. He was obviously not a true immigrant, but possibly traveled out of the country and back in 1868.
