Although there was relatively little Swiss (or German) emigration to the
New World by the time this novel was written, there was of course a great

Indeed, Percy Bysshe Shelley's grandfather had been born in the British
Colonies of North America (in Passaic, New Jersey), whence he reimmigrated
to Great Britain. The closest parallel for the Creature's plan, and
probably one that would be uppermost in the minds of a contemporary
reader, was the British penal colony established in 1788 at Botany Bay in Australia.
There hardened convicts were transported so as to rid honest citizens from
their threat to the common welfare. Over time, of course, these outcasts
"civilized" a new continent.
