Immigration:

Alfred arrived in Quebec as one of the British Home Children (The British Child Emmigration Scheme to Canada (1870-1957)

100,000 British Home Children (alleged orphans) were sent to Canada by over 50 British Child Care organizations. These 4-15 year old children worked as indentured farm labourers and domestic servants until they were 18 years old. The British Child Care organizations professed a dominant motive of providing these children with a better life than they would have had in Britain, but they had other ignoble and pecuniary motives.

The organizations rid themselves of an unwanted segment of their society and profited when they sold these children to Canadian farmers. Siblings in care in Britain were separated from their families and each other when they were sent to Canada. Most never saw each other again. Many spent their lives trying to identify their parents and find their siblings and most were unsuccessful. An unknown number of children ran away from their indentured labour in Canada to the United States. Millions of Americans may be descended from British Home Children.

S/S Bavarian

The S/S Bavarian - Allan Line steamship built 1899 at Dumbarton, Scotland by William Denny Co. This ship sailed with emigrants from 1899 to 1905, mainly between Liverpool and Canadian ports. For some time she was also used as a Boer War troop transport.


Maria Susan Rye, (31 March 1829 – 12 November 1903), was an English social reformer and a promoter of emigration, especially of young women living in Liverpool workhouses.

Miss Rye began her emigration work by transporting adult middle-class women to Australia and New Zealand. In 1861 Rye set up the Female Middle Class Emigration Society (1861-1908) with the support of many of the ladies of Langham Place. The Society provided interest free loans, repayable over a period of two years and four months, to enable educated women to emigrate. It also established and maintained correspondents at most colonial ports to which female emigrants might travel. In 1862, Rye sail to New Zealand with the first party sent out by the Society. Miss Rye went on to Australia and did not return to England until 1865. The Society was most active between 1861 and 1867 when Rye was actively involved with the running of the Society.

From 1865 onwards, Rye turned her attention to the rescue of poorhouse and orphaned children. This effort is the work for which she is best known in Canada. Between 1869 and 1896, 3,623 female children were brought to Canada. She made many trips herself, placing these children at her reception centres at Niagara-on-the-Lake and Peckham, Ontario. Most of the emigrants were wards of the English poor-law unions.

By 1895, Miss Rye transferred her reception centres to the Church of England Waifs and Strays Society and retired.
