Flip - your post crossed with my edit!

I definitely think they were headed to Kingston, wherever that may be.


Flip Report 11 Apr 2013 20:33

Yes, I see that, but looking at the Canadian list (arrival 20 Sept- which is rather a quick crossing!!) there is more written on it. Like who was in charge of the Catholic children and who was taking charge of them in Canada. I'm not sure if it says for or from Kingston/Kingstown. Take a look see what you think.

Sorry, should have refreshed first - see you already have that image

Flip, looking at the outgoing list it has Cath Cain ticket no 3867 and Stephen Cain ticket no 3866, port of embarkation Liverpool?

EDIT: The only mention I can see of Kingston on the Canadian arrival is where it says they were Catholic children in the care of Mrs Lacy for Kingston - I'd take that to be their destination. That manifest also gives Liverpool as embarkation.

I knew of Queenstown (Cobh) as a port in Cork, didn't know there was a Kingstown in Ireland too.

I was wondering if they'd been in a workhouse in Liverpool on the 1891 which might have shown birthplace ......

MC, the writing also states they departed Kingstown - isn't that a sailing port in Ireland?


MarieCeleste Report 11 Apr 2013 20:09

Just looking at the Canadian shipping lists and they were workhouse children.

If they departed from Liverpool would Irish children have been taken across to Liverpool to go on to Canada? I'm curious about this, was wondering if they may have been in a workhouse in Liverpool first?

Are you sure that they were Irish born? There are 4 columns for nationalities across the top of the shipping list - English, Scotch, Irish and Foreigners. All of the children's ages are entered under the column headed English (but that could be laziness on the part of the person filling in the list).

Need help with an Irish question.

Catherine (10 yrs old) and Stephen (11 yrs) Cain left Liverpool for Canada on the Parisian ship on September 26, 1891. Their parents were Joseph Cain and Julia O'Brien. We are trying to find out place of birth of this family in Ireland.
