Bolton sets forth information on about two-thousand five-hundred individuals and families who migrated to New England during the first three-quarters of the eighteenth century. She provides information on their place of origin, date of arrival, residence and, when available, on other family members.

The information on each immigrant has been drawn from a variety of sources, both primary and secondary. First, the author has scoured the records of the town of Boston, which include many references to new inhabitants who might become a burden on the town. She has also examined town vital records and the records of county and colony courts. Only a small fraction of the entries are based on passenger lists.

Then, Bolton drew information from town and county histories and from family genealogies. Also, she had access to some unpublished manuscripts. Especially in reference to these secondary sources, she cautions the user that her "list is only intended to be a guide toward further investigation."

Although many of the people covered here came from England, as had so many New Englanders in the seventeenth century, this compilation includes many immigrants from other countries, including especially the Germans who came to Waldoboro, Maine, and the Scotch-Irish who settled in Londonderry, New Hampshire, and elsewhere in New England.
