This looks like notes connected to a passenger list.....

A John Lamb arrived Halifax 27 Jan 1887 from Liverpool on the S S Sarnia. A farm hand. Sent to Toronto.

This info would tie in with what is known about John from Ontario records so perhaps this is him?

As pointed out earlier by *Sandra*, Catherine apparently arrived a couple of years before John did.

PB

Edited to add: the note doesn't give his age but his entry on the passenger list proper has his age as 20.

Hello Sandra and Polarbear,  thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to find out all the info.  I don't have worldwide ancestry or FindMyPast subscriptions just UK, and what you have found confirms and improves on the info I had.  His father remarried (to my gt grandmother) and they subsequently had four more boys.  John was the second son of the family and would not have taken over the farm and a new life in Canada would probably have appealed to him.  Sadly my tale of a shipboard romance with Catherine doesn't agree with the evidence!  Many thanks, Brenda

You can access images of the Canadian censuses for free at this link to Library and Archives Canada....

https://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/Pages/census.aspx

The  https://www.familysearch.org/en/  website will have free images of the marriage and should have death certs up to about 1940 or so, I believe.

Hello Polarbear,                                                                                                                                   I have quite a few family members from East Lancashire and the Craven area of Yorkshire who migrated to Ontario and Manitoba in the nineteenth century, and can now look into their emigration and settlement in Canada.  Ontario, especially, seemed to be the favourite place of settlement for these farming folks. The Canadian records give relatively upto date records for them.                                                                                                                 Many thanks for your help,  much appreciated,   Brenda

The early passenger lists never give enough information to positively identify someone.

The 1901 census Etobicoke York West Ontario shows different immigration dates for the couple.

John Lamb   33 immigrated 1887
Catharine Lamb   36 immigrated 1885
Richard J. Lamb   3
Victor S Lamb   1

Victor Sterling Lamb. - 22 May 1900 York Ontario.
Richard J Lamb was John.

Sandra

Possible for Victor Lamb born about 1901 and aged 18 years passed away Western Hospital 25 May 1919 York Ontario aged 18 years. TB Meningitus.
