Return of Emigrants Landed at the Port of Kingston Ontario, Canada 1861-1882

following database is a Return of Emigrants Landed at the Port of Kingston 1861-1882, their destination, etc. The ledger pages these names were taken from consists of two pages facing each other containing information provided for each individual recorded. NOTE: I have only extracted partial information from the left side of the facing ledger pages. There is still much detail on each individual to be found on the facing (right) side pages and in comments inserted on both sides.

The column headings for each individual are Date of Landing; Name of Emigrant or Head of Family; From what Country; Via what Seaport Town; Destination; Condition, general appearnace, health; No. of male adults; No. of Female adults; No. under 6 years; No. over 6 years and under 12; in what Township Employed as Servants; In what Township settled, or bought land; Amount of passage tickets issued; Amount of provisions; Amount of Medical aid; amount of Capital brought by them; General Remarks.

The General Remarks are interesting, although small and difficult to read. Most are quite lengthy, some simply state that a ticket was given for a loaf of bread. Some have notations such as "came up by train but missed the Bay Boat, I gave him ticket for one night's lodgings..." Peter McLaren from Scotland to Quebec has the following notation "being destitute and deserving of joining friends at Thorold I gave him a pass to [Lacroix?]" Sometimes provisions are noted "Gave him a half dozen loaves of bread". John Mill from Ireland had this note "His wife was confined on [unreadable] coming out and is now very poorly.. They are out of money...." Mr. Leibke [?] of Germany is noted as "going to join his son in Sombra". Poor Niclaus Segar of Germany is noted (as are others) as "sent to Ottawa in mistake . See Mr. Will's letter. Gave him a passage ticket to Toronto, in order they might join friends in Guelph - for 4 adults" One of the saddest notations is for James Reich and family on 23 Jan. 1863 "the daughter Jane died near Prescott of diptheria, the family passed up to Guelph, the St. Andrews Society took charge of the body of girl and promised to see her decently interrred"
