Registry Naturalized Subjects

Registry of Naturalized Subjects in the Hawaiian Kingdom (circ. 1840-1893)

The nationality or political status of persons ancillary to the Hawaiian Kingdom are termed Hawaiian subjects. The native inhabitants of the Hawaiian Islands became subjects of the Kingdom as a consequence of the unification of the islands by His Majesty King Kamehameha I at the turn of the 19th century. Since Hawai'i became constitutional, foreigners were capable of becoming Hawaiian nationals either through naturalization or denization. Under the naturalization laws of the Kingdom, foreigners who resided in the Hawaiian Islands for at least five years could apply to the Minister of Interior for naturalization.

According to the last census report done in the Hawaiian Kingdom in 1890, it listed the population of Hawaiian subjects at 48,117. Of this population the census listed the aboriginal Hawaiian at 40,622 (84.4%) and those Hawaiian subjects of foreign ancestry at 7,495 (15.6%).

In order to assist individuals of foreign ancestry here in the country and abroad in determining their Hawaiian nationality, the Hawaiian Kingdom Government is publishing on our web site sections of the registry of naturalized subjects, circa. 1840-1893, from the Hawai'i archives.

If you are a direct descendent of someone who was naturalized in the Kingdom, then you possess Hawaiian nationality, unless shown it was legally extinguished.

The registry is listed alphabetically by last name.
