    Does anyone know where someone from Kilkenny City would sail for England between around 1838 to 1847, I was wondering if there were any ships records online to search, any help appreciated

    I really don't know anything about this area of research but I have come across this webpage which may be of interest to begin with.

    Ancestry have some records but I cannot really tell what they are from the catalogue. Can you give me a name?

    The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company had been running ships between England, Ireland and the Isle of Man since 1830 but, as these trips were viewed upon as domestic, passenger lists were not kept. :(

    This is a good site - Irish immigration to Britain:

    This page mentions emigration from Kilkenny to Liverpool via Wexford and also to England via Cork:

    Name is Richard Dunn, possibly Dunne, b.1820, married in Manchester 1847, I don't think the rest of his family came with him
