Unknown Report 1 Mar 2013 16:02

I am J.T.Elliotts granddaughter I have been searching for any information I can get on him or his family. He was born in 1896 in Wales but do not know the town or anything. He possibly had a sister named Enid born 1904. He was sent to canada in 1911 on board the ship Corinthian as a part of the Barnardo Children. I have his marriage certificate to my grandmother and parents are listed as unknown. Any help would be greatful Ive hit a wall. Ive searched the census but without any other info he could be one of many because John Thomas is a common name. Any hints or any living relatives???? I would be so thankful.
Debbie :-)

You could try asking for his file from Barnardos .They have kept records for their children so that would be the place to start

If you google Barnardo's Children sent to Canada you may find a link to other information on this subject.

Hope this helps.

There is an article on Annie Macpherson:

""Miss Macpherson brought children to Canada from her own home in London but she also had arrangments with Barnardo, Quarrier, Smyly, and many other organizations to accompany and place their children as well. Some of the children came from workhouses.""

Go on line and have a look. It may help direct you to a site. I think you will find heaps of information to direct you to sites covering the immigrant passenger ships and their destinations to all over Canada.

Good luck again.

Enid Violet Elliott.1904.

John Thomas should both be on the 1911.

John Thomas Elliott left London England 23/9/1911 and arrived in Quebec 6/10/1911 under the Barnardo scheme.


Peahen Report 1 Mar 2013 22:37

Oh well done Kay so here's the starter to the research in Canada.

Barnardo's staff are very helpful so keep fingers crossed on this one.

If you google Barnardo's Quebec Canada there is some information on the old home they would have gone to and you may find a link. I cannot find a current Barnardo's as we have here in New Zealand, but you may get lucky. They keep good records.

Some interesting reading under Barnardo's Quebec, Canada when you google.

Kay???? Report 2 Mar 2013 08:16

He maybe under just John Elliott.

It maybe possible to narrow a birth entry if Debbie gives his birth month,she can then hopefully apply for a BC.

UK Barnardos will hold entry and release file information on him.


Enid Violet Elliott was also on the same ship.

John Thomas Elliott birth given as,,,,,,,,31/10/1896.only a John Elliott registered Oct/Dec 1896-----BC needed.

patchem Report 2 Mar 2013 16:44

Is the assumption that Enid might be his sister just because they are travelling on the same ship?
The family that I found in 1911 has all children accounted for.
If John Thomas (from the ship) was only registered as John, then Enid Violet(on the ship) may be only registered as Enid?


Kay???? Report 2 Mar 2013 19:19

The birth of John Elliott,


Elliott John,,,registered as,,,,,,,Criickhowell, (Monmouthshire.

1901 Census-----A John Elliott 1896 is showing in ,,,Llansantffrend ?Monmouthshire about 10 miles away.,,,,,aged 5, needs a view.

Only 1 birth for 1904,

Enid Violet Elliott ----Cardiff....

Perhaps during 1911 the family broke down?


patchem Report 2 Mar 2013 19:53

Sorry, cannot see the one you mean, was it FMP? Ancestry has:
1901 Wales Census
John Elliott Age in 1901: 5 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1896

The 1911 family may have broken down, but would they claim 11 children living and 11 children showing in 1911 but not John?


Kay???? Report 2 Mar 2013 20:26

There is another birth,
John Evrad Elliott,,,,March 1897 reg------Llanfyllin,

There is only the Crickhowell and the one above that fits with his birth as,,31/10 1896 ......born in Wales as put by Debbie,maybe he wasnt born there?so was nearly 15 when he landed in CA..

Debbie can apply for his details...


Unknown Report 3 Mar 2013 03:21

You people are wonderful. Im not positive on the day or month of his birthday but i am about the year 1896. I have requested info from barnardo files I am hoping for something from there. Im not totally sure of his birthplace just he put on the marriage certificate to my grandmother that his birthplace was bagillt flintshire wales. So i dont know if he even knew where he was born. Searching through census and births there is nothing connecting. It is possible Enid Elliott was his sister they both came on the same ship with the same last name,but then again i have no proof, hopefully something will come about so i can keep going. You people are ever so helpful and i am truly grateful. :-) Debbie

Have you checked the image for the Corinthian - John Thos Elliott was listed as 9 years old, which is rather a large discrepancy? Enid Elliott is also listed a 9.

Can someone check out the 1911 census on FMP - I'm getting a hit for John Thomas Elliott born *flint* living in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire but I can't find it on Ancestry.
