Female Emigration Society

In 1862 the Female Emigration Society had two matrons travelling in charge of women on the way to Quebec. Passage was given to the women for free and clothing was provided for them. The women bound themselves to repay one-half the expenditure spent upon them. (Parliamentary Papers, 1863, XV (3199), 36.)

Records:

Still working on the details of this immigration movement. It is not clear if this emigration society is the same as the London Female Emigration Society.

If any one has additional information on any of these children please contact me.
