Emigration 1906

Hon. Mrs. Ellen Joyce's 4th Party to Canada
24 April 1906, SS Lake Manitoba
Matron, Miss Turnbull
 
The Hon. Mrs. Ellen Joyce was the head of the British Women’s Emigration Association (BWEA) from 1901 until 1919. The aim of the BWEA was to encourage middle class women to emigrate to the colonies because of a perceived surplus of women in England and Wales while there was a dearth of British women in the colonies, particulary in Canada and Australia. This database contains 99 individuals, including single, married and widowed women, as well as several children and men. Learn more...
