Canada Lookup Request / Home Child GILBERT MUMFORD
« on: Saturday 01 November 08 05:05 GMT (UK)  »

I have just found out that a member from my husbands side of the family was a Home Child...His name Gilbert Mumford b Wickham Market Suffolk 1898..sorry ......1897
He was sent to Canada at the age of 10 sailing on Empress of Britain. It seems he was at one of the Fegan Homes.There were 108 boys on the same Ship.

I see that there is a contact information on the net for the Fagans Homes One in Kent and the other in Canada.
Would anyone know if this is up to date?

I have found him in the 1911 census living Oakville Halton Ontario listed as a domestic.
Then I have his Attestation papers from 1916 living in Gavanlock Sask, occupation farmer. And thats all.

Gosh I can't imagine how you could send a poor child at the age of 10 off to another country.  I wonder why he would have been at the Fagan home ?
I know for a fact there there were another two children in the family who stayed with there mother.

I couldn't see Gilbert's name on the War Memorial I hope he survived.

I see that you can order the files on the war record but it seems that you don't know the cost until they send it back to you. All has to be done by post and I live in Australia.

Any advice on finding out more on Gilbert would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you

Where to start?

I have just found out from information on a Poor Record 1861 that WILLIAM SHAW Age 20 was in Australia.
Not sure when but I am guessing that it must have been late 1850's.

He was born c1840 Glasgow

Also haven't been able to trace his brother JAMES after 1861 he was b c 1838 GLASGOW
Wondering if he also came to OZ.

John Shaw & Mary Wardrop.

All help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you.
