Carlisle Scotland Emigration to Canada 1863

Preface: Bridget Casson spotted these reports in the Carlisle Patriot of 1863, about Scottish families sent out by the Carlisle Emigration Committee. The families were weavers. Bridget posted them on the Cumberland mailing list and gave permission to copy them. Harry Dodsworth have adds information from Canadian sources.

May 16th 1863

Departure of the Carlisle Emigrants

The emigrants for Canada sent out by the Carlisle Emigration Committee left the Citadel Station on Monday morning [May 11] at 20 minutes past 8 o'clock.

They numbered 33 persons in all, comprising four families, whose names are PAISLEY, SANDERSON, NIMMONS and PRUDHAM. They were accompanied to the station by at least 200 of their neighbours and friends who cheered them lustily as the engine steamed away. [1]

June 6th 1863

Departure of a second batch of emigrants from Carlisle

Another batch of operatives consisting of two families, one of the name of BELL from Kingstown and the other HUTCHINSON of Caldewgate, numbering in all 14 persons, left the Citadel station on Saturday morning [May 30] for Glasgow, where they will embark for Canada.

They were sent off by the Carlisle Emigration Committee and the Very Rev the Dean of Carlisle, chairman of the Committee, was present to witness their departure, and addressed a few farewell words of advice to the emigrants. It had been intended to send out 4 families as before but an intimation had been received from Glasgow that there was only accommodation on board for 2 families. When in the carriage the Rev R S Adams, secretary to the Committee, gave each of them a sum of money.

The train arrived at Glasgow at ten minutes to one, and on the same day they embarked in the St George for Quebec, where they will be received by a Government agent and taken proper care of till they get work.

It will be seen that the Mansion House Committee contributed 20 UKP towards the outfits of this batch of emigrants. Sir George MUSGRAVE we observe has subscribed 50 UKP. [2], [3]

Notes from Harry

[1] The route and ship are not mentioned but the Allan liner St George left Glasgow on May 13, which fits well with the departure date. Montreal Gazette, May 29, 1863 Arrived Quebec, May 24 to May 26 SS St George, [captain] Wylie, Glasgow, May 13, Allans Rae & Co., general cargo for Quebec and Montreal, 16 cabin and 407 steerage. The Montreal Gazette published testimonials to Captain Wylie from the first class passengers and from the fore-compartment and the steerage passengers. Steerage passengers named were George Stockard, W. Steel, Thomas Scott, and James Piggersgill.

[2] The second group of emigrants apparently left Glasgow on May 30. Although the article says they went on the St George, that was not possible as the St George was in Montreal. The Allan Line had no sailing from Glasgow around June 1, and no sailing from Liverpool. At this time, the Allan Line had cut back on their Glasgow sailings and were giving Glasgow passengers ferry tickets to Londonderry, where the passengers joined a Liverpool - Londonderry - Quebec ship. The closest sailing in time was the Anchor liner United Kingdom which left Glasgow on June 3 and arrived at Quebec on June 19 with 542 passengers, which was the largest number ever brought to Quebec on one steamer.

[3] The Montreal Gazette (June 4, 1863) had the following note: An Emigration Association has been formed at Carlisle, and 500 persons are preparing to leave for Canada. A large number are also emigrating from North Warwickshire.
