red mail Mass immigration 1870s-80
While trawling the 1881 Elswick census returns, I have been struck by the huge influx of people from many walks of life: labourers, skilled trades, tradesmen & professionals, who moved into the area between 1870 & 1880 - worked out by their place ofbirth and the fact that many had offspring born elsewhere: they came from all areas of England and Wales. Many came from Ireland - potato famine? and Scotland - land clearances? others from Russia, Poland & other countries in central Europe - Jews fleeing pogrommes? and Scandanavia - not so surprising, as many were shipbulders or seafarers. More surprising were the odd individuals who had married locally, but were born in Africa, West Indies, & the far east. What I would like to know is, whatwas the magnet that attracted them at that time to the Newcastle area? It was too late for the railway boom, I would have thought. Was shipbuilding experiencing a great expansion at the time, with lots of jobs available in this and the support industries? the other support workers & professional would be attracted also by the opportunities for work & trade. Have I got that right, or was there another reason for the influx & does my hunch correspond with a known demographic change in the perio...
