Subject: [ONTARIO] 1836 Emigration from Downton, Wiltshire to Canada
Date: Wed, 1 Jul 2009 12:39:14 -0400
April 7, 1836 Wiltshire, Eng. sent their poor from Downton, Wilts. to Canada aboard the King William landing in Quebec. Not known where in Canada/Ontario they went to.
The CHAMP family and the FORDER families were aboard, however, both of these families were back in Wiltshire in 1841.
Questions: Why and how would these families return to Wiltshire? Where did they get the money for their return voyage in such a short period of time?
Anyone with any information to help I'd be pleased to hear from you. Catherine
