Sorry I didn't have time to go through all the information to see the proper one, but there were 2 in Manitoba, then? Ah, well, I tried...It is hard when researched so long ago, not my family, and so very many threads to go through...J.J.

Thanks Karen,
I believe my Great Grandfather was one. Are there records other than ship passenger lists where I might find out where in England he came from or where in Canada he was placed?

Charles Stanley arrived 1891 on the Sarnia with his brother Henry, from Liverpool bound for Belleville, Ontario (though I don't think the Marchmont home).

I should add, Charles Stanley is actually is just the name on my Grandmother's birth cert. I know nothing about him except his name and that he didn't stick around as Grandma was adopted.

Google British Home Children. You will find Perry Snow from Calgary who has complied a database for British Home Children. He will do a free search for you and if he finds the child he will put you in touch with people who will be able to help. S.

Hi everyone,

In case anyone has not seen or heard, the Ontario Government has passed a bill declaring September 28 British Home Child Day.

http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/bills/bills_detail.do?locale=en&Intranet&BillID= In 2015, a special event will be held in collaboration with the British Home Child Group International  (britishhomechildgroupinternational.com) and Fanshawe Pioneer Village as part of Doors Open London.  Lots of events planned for both September 26 and September 27. Come one day or both.
FREE admission to the Village and FREE parking!
