J. Dickson, who is very conservative in his estimates of the overall number of Irish immigrants fleeing to America, nonetheless suggests that as many as 40,000 may have come in the four short years before the beginning of the Revolution in 1775. By 1790, there were Irish immigrants or their descendants in every state of the new American republic, but as noted at the beginning of this chapter, there was a strong Southern and Mid-Atlantic cast to Irish settlement in the colonial era, a cast that would distinguish it clearly from the Irish migration in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Because of their work, we know the prominence of immigrants from Avellini or towns in Sicily in Italy in Boston’s Italian North End or from Fortun or Hjoringfjord parishes in Norway in the Wisconsin counties of Crawford, Vernon, and Buffalo. We know less, however, about the regional origins of Irish settlers in America, in part because sources identifying the home villages of Irish immigrants are not as good as the sources for Italians or Norwegians. We do have some scattered evidence, however, of chains from Ireland leading to communities in America: emigrants from the Dingle peninsula in County Kerry clustered in the Hungry Hill neighborhood in Springfield, Massachusetts, for example, and immigrants from the island of Aranmore off the Donegal coast settled in Beaver Island, Michigan.

Historians have the lists of names from the 1790 census manuscript sheets. In 1927, the American Council of Learned Societies, prompted by congressional efforts to legislate immigration quotas based on the ethnic composition of the United States, undertook a study of those names to estimate the ethnic ancestry of all the people in the nation at its birth. In that project, the ACLS committee estimated that there were about 300,000 immigrants from Ireland or their descendants in the new United States by 1790.
