Elizabeth Haycock
« on: Sunday 18 November 18 14:51 GMT (UK) »
Elizabeth Haycock was born in Birmingham, England in 1878, the youngest daughter of Samuel Haycock & Eliza Steventon.
The Haycock family must have fallen on hard times resulting in the four youngest children becoming Middlemore Home Children. Benjamin & Samuel were sent to Ontario in 1881 travelling on The Parisian. Brother John sailed on the Polynesian to Ontario in 1882 & cousin William Henry Haycock sailed on the Carthaginian to Nova Scotia in 1907.
Elizabeth Haycock sailed on The Lake Ontario to Ontario in 1887.
I have been able to discover what became of brothers Benjamin, Samuel & John in Ontario but have no idea what became of Elizabeth. If anyone can help at all I would be most grateful.
Also, should anyone know what became of William Henry Haycock after his arrival in Nova Scotia in 1907 I would be most interested too.
With many thanks.

Wonder if this is Samuel, wife Annie, daughter Bessie May... in Elgin in 1911. 
http://automatedgenealogy.com/census11/SplitView.jsp?id=139509

Samuel born 1871

Fairview Dutton Cemetery in Elgin - shows his name on the stone with his wife.  Birth year is 1869 here.  No death date though.

Benjamin Haycock obituary...very hard to read at first, but then it comes in to focus.  Give it a little time :).   No mention of sister Elizabeth.   Does mention that he is survived by brothers Samuel, John and William.

Many thanks Sandra & Run Kitty, I am very grateful.
The census for William in Nova Scotia is the first info on him in Canada which is great. I am so pleased.
The other of your findings match with my own findings for the lads and I know what became of them.
It is Elizabeth who is my brick wall and I haven't been able to spot any info on her at all following her ships travel record. Hopefully, something might be found one day so that I can learn what became of her.
Thank you both for your kind help.
