BRISTOL CHILDREN WHO WERE EMIGRATED TO CANADA FROM 1871 THROUGH TO 1912

Some were orphans, some were deserted and some were sent by parents who were unable to provide for them.  The children started their journey from the Workhouses, Industrial Schools, Reformatories and Ragged Schools in Bristol and also the Bristol Emigration Home for Girls.  Some had brothers and sisters, others were on their own; all were emigrated without family or friends to start a new life in Canada.
