South Carolina Ships' Lists

The Ship Britannia
John Bryan, Master

In 1767 The Britannia, with Irish protestant passengers, departed Belfast (or Newry), Ireland, and arrived at Charleston, South Carolina.

Note:
Petitions to the Governor from the listed "poor persons" stated that they were protestants encouraged by the "bounty" to come to South Carolina. Passages were paid at "four pounds and two pounds sterling according to their respective ages to Messrs Torrans & Pouag on behalf of the owners of the said ship" from the "Bounty"; each then received "the remaining twenty shillings sterling" for themselves.

The ship may have taken passengers aboard from both Belfast and Newry, Ireland. The meeting of the Council states that the petitioners were "from Newry", but only lists 99 of the total of 174 passengers.
