Dr. Thomas E. Jordan identifies a range of practices and policies by which prisoners, indentured servants, and others were relocated to the American colonies. He discusses what some of the motivations for such practices were as well as aspects of the cultural context supporting them. "Transporting prisoners to the colonies provided domestic relief for local authorities while, nominally, increasing the population base for the colonies."... "In the era, the noun transport meant a convict, and also a ship."
