Peter Robinson Settlers from Ireland to Quebec

In 1822, the British Government established a trial emigration scheme for Irish paupers to Upper Canada. There were two waves of emigration, one in 1823 the second in 1825.

On July 1, 1823, Peter Robinson arranged for 568 paupers from Ireland (mainly Cork) to sail on two ships, the HEBE and the STAKESBY, to Quebec City. Each ship carried an experienced medical officer. Following an eight-week sea voyage, the passengers boarded steamships, then barges, and wagons for the rest of the journey to Upper Canada (present day Ontario). They settled in the Townships of Ramsay, Pakenham, Bathurst, Lanark, Beckwith, Goulbourn, Darling and Huntley in the Ottawa Valley area.

19th July 1824 Lord Bathurst (Secretary for War and Colonies) at Downing Street sends a letter regarding proposed scheme for emigration from Ireland to Upper Canada being held up because of complaints of the disturbances among the Irish Emigrants. Source: DD/DC/P2/65 held at Doncaster Archives Department

In spring of 1825, Robinson recorded 2024 passengers on board nine ships - Fortitude, Resolution, Albion, Brunswick, Star, Amity, Regulus, Elizabeth, and John Barry. The ships left Cobh, Cork Harbour Ireland in May and June, 1825. By the fall of 1825, each family was relocated to a log shanty on property in Asphodel, Douro, Dummer, Emily, Ennismore (Gore of Emily), Smith, and Otonabee Townships in Peterborough.

Following are passenger lists and surgeons' logs with details of the sick and dying for the ships that made the voyage in 1825.
