If you find your Singleton dispatched to America as "a convict", don't judge the person by today's standards. Between 1615 and 1775 more than 50,000 men, women and children were sent to America for insignificant crimes (pickpockets, vagrant and idle persons, incorrigible and disobedient servants or the poor who could not take care of themselves or their families). For these persons, being sent to America offered a fresh opportunity and improved living conditions rather than serving prison terms in very bleak poorly run jails.

Much effort was taken to ensure accuracy and completeness of the records contained in the volumes above. Please e-mail me with any corrections or additions. Also please e-mail me  if you find any Singleton ancestors from these emigrant records. I'd like to know if other find them useful.
