Child Emigration from Britain to Canada (Hazel Brae, Peterborough, Ontario)

This is a sub-project of the Child Emigration from Britain to Canada (Barnardo Homes).

This one is for the Barnardo Homes children that were going to Hazel Brae in Peterborough, Ontario. The Home was known as Hazel Brae from its founding in 1893 until Margaret Cox, the wife of the original owner of the building died in 1912. It then became known as The Margaret Cox Home until it closed in 1924.

Here is a link to the Hazel Brae Memorial in Peterborough, Ontario.

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.
