This is a sub-project of the Child Emigration from Britain to Canada (Quarrier's Orphan Homes of Scotland).

This Home was used by William Quarrier starting in 1888.

Here is a link to the founder, William Quarrier's profile.

On the whole the profiles linked to this project do not have any information about the parents, what they did in Canada or exact dates of birth. What they do have is a source document showing their immigration to Canada. Because of the numbers involved the names are not listed in the body of the project - please refer to the profiles added listed (right) for links.

Some profiles may be linked to their families as someone from the family has contacted us with information.
