Subject: [Ont] Miss Rye Children - Niagara Region
Date: Mon, 23 Jul 2001 09:17:17 -0500
Has anyone researched the Miss Rye children brought from England from
impoverished families to work in homes here. The notes I have pertain to my
ggmother Rose Field.
Anyone with information on the Miss Rye children, or Rose Field, I would
appreciate learning more.
Thanks in advance
Notes found on my Rose Field's import records per the website listed:
Between 1869 and the early 1930s, over 100,000 children were sent to Canada
from Great Britain during the child emigration movement. Members of the
British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa are locating and
indexing the names of these Home Children found in passenger lists in the
custody of the National Archives of Canada.
Year of arrival: 1870
Microfilm reel: C-4526
Ship: SS Peruvian
Port of departure: Liverpool
Departure Date: 27 Oct 1870
Port of arrival: Quebec
Arrival Date: 9 Nov 1870
Comments: Miss M.S. Rye was in cabin class so the children were probably her
party to Niagara-on-the-Lake.
