"This is the 1st instalment detailing information about the girls emigrated to Canada by Maria RYE during 1892, which is extracted from a copy of the "Annual Report for 1892 of Miss RYE's Emigration Home for Destitute Little Girls, Avenue House, High Street, Peckham", supplied by the University of Liverpool Library.

During 1892 70 Girls were admitted into the RYE Home at Peckham, 63 were sent to Canada and 7 returned as unsuitable, or from other causes.

The 63 Girls came on the SS Mongolian, in 2 parties. The Mongolian sailed from Liverpool in February arriving Halifax on March 9th 1892 (M1) & again on May 19th arriving Quebec May 30th 1892 (M2). Marj KOHLI has kindly supplied lists of the RYE girls, transcribed from the passenger lists by the NAC, and I have made an attempt at cross matching these with the Girls whose initials were listed in the RYE Annual Report for 1892

55. A.N., aged 10 (Agusta NEWBURY 10 - M2); mother dead; father a very bad man. Placed with Mr T.M., Farmer, Jordan Station P.O., Ontario. Adopted.

56. E.N., aged 8 (Ellen NEWBURY 8 - M2); sister to the above. Placed with Mr H.M., Farmer, Jordan Station P.O., Ontario. Adopted."

Thank you, Mags! As you can see, it's still a work in progress.. bio writing is not my strong suit ;)
I have been researching the Newbery family more extensively. It seems ALL used the "Newbery" spelling. I propose we change this, and her father's, last names to Newbery from Newberry.

Alice is 22 degrees from Peter Roberts, 17 degrees from Emma Smith and 20 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
