Peter Robinson Settlers - Fortitude Passengers May 1825

« Back to Projects Dashboard

Passengers arriving onboard the Fortitude

This project page belongs to the main project Peter Robinson Settlers in Canada

A return of Irish Emigrants proceeding to Canada, to be settled at the Expense of His Majesty's Government, under the superintendence of Mr. Peter Robinson, Embarked at Cove on board of the FORTITUDE for passage to Quebec - Mr. Francis Connin, Surgeon in charge. Ship Fortitude departed Cork 10th May 1825 and arrived at Quebec on June 15th 1825. The emigrants proceeded from Quebec to Montreal aboard the steam boat New Swiftsure, on June 17th 1825.

Take note that children over the age of 14 were registered as adults and people over 45 years old were not selected for the emigration scheme but it looks like there were exceptions made sometime.
