Post-1837 Emigrants

Introduction

This is a list of emigrants sent from England to Upper Canada by the Petworth Emigration Committee between 1838 and 1850. The names were gathered in the UNITED KINGDOM by Sheila Haines and Leigh Lawson in the course of research for the list of Petworth emigrants presented as Part 2 of Assisting Emigration to Upper Canada. As that book was the story of emigrants sent on ships chartered by the Petworth committee between 1832 and 1837, we did not take these additional names past the first stage of collection. Leigh Lawson has rescued them from our files, checked the information presented here, and made some additions to it.

The Petworth committee played a smaller part in sending emigrants after 1837. George Wyndham inherited the Petworth estates on the death of his father, the Earl of Egremont, in November 1837. Wyndham was a different sponsor from his father. He chose to follow norms adopted by other landlords, and he was unwilling to pay for the extras that had distinguished the Petworth emigrations organized by Thomas Sockett for the Earl. Thus, these emigrants sailed singly or in small groups rather than as passengers on ships chartered by the Petworth committee. They were sent without the superintendent or the additional assistance in Canada which characterized the emigrations described in Assisting Emigration.

A comparison of this list with the longer list in Assisting Emigration reveals evidence of chain migration. If you find your ancestor here, there may be useful information in Assisting Emigration, in English Immigrant Voices, or in our family history files, which are deposited at the University of Waterloo. If you have additional information on an individual or family on this list which you are willing to share, please contact Leigh Lawson or Brenda Dougall Merriman.


A LIST OF EMIGRANTS SENT UNDER THE PETWORTH COMMITTEE BETWEEN 1838 AND 1850
Compiled by Leigh Lawson

The ships on which Petworth emigrants travelled between 1838 and 1850 were: Hibernia 1838; Orbit 1842; Resource, The Sisters, and Toronto 1843; Borneo, Burrell, and Mary Ann 1844; Blenheim, Sydney, and Vesper 1845; and Laurel 1850. These ships probably sailed from London, but we do not have information on the port or sailing date. All the parishes listed here as sending emigrants are in West Sussex.

Key to the list

The layout for presenting the information is similar to that used in Assisting Emigration. It is as follows:

Name of emigrant | age at emigration, birth, baptismal date, death date | Spouse: name of spouse, marriage date and place | age of spouse at emigration, birth, baptismal date, death date | Children: names of children, birth dates, baptismal dates, death dates (marriages) | From: parish sending emigrant | To: place in Canada of first settlement; later places of settlement | Occupation Eng: | Occupation Can: | year of emigration | ship | Assistance: people or organizations who enabled the person or family to emigrate | Other data of interest. SOURCE: sources of information in brief

Married women have been entered on this list under their maiden names where known, with a cross-reference to their husband's name.

The list is based on English sources, with the exception of the entry for Lannaway.
