Title: Help with a note
Post by: SmallTownGirl on Friday 12 November 21 18:29 GMT (UK)
Hello peeps

The attached image is from a 1908 passenger list from the UK to Canada.  Third from the bottom is George Henry Palmer.  Does it say "To be deported ... " , please?  If not, what?

Thanks
STG

Possibly. If you look at the passenger on Line 14 (Thomas Gregory), it also says "To be deported" followed by a file number.

Thanks, but the thing is, I don't think he was deported.  I think he stayed there, joined the Canadian army in 1914 and served through WW1, returning to Canada in 1919 and dying there in 1941.

What a puzzle!

The note refers to Annie, (doesn’t it?) there is a faint line from the note to her name.  So, did she stay in Canada too?
What does it say about her husband in that other column?

Added.

Don't know if this also applies to Canadian records:

"If your ancestor was detained, you should see the notation S.I. (for special inquiry) or the word admitted or deported stamped next to his name.
If any of these are present, there should be a list of detainees directly after the last page of the ship’s manifest. Next, there should be a list of detainees held for special inquiry.
The list should provide details about why the person was detained; how long they were detained; if they were deported and the name of the return ship; and if the person was detained because they were waiting for someone, the name and address of the person they are waiting for should be provided".

If he was 2 in 1908, he would not have been old enough to enlist in 1914, surely.

Doh! That's what happens when the son has the exact same name as the father.  Sorry.  George the father went out in 1907, so his wife and son followed the next year.

Annie stayed in Canada too and died there.
