Welcome to the English to Canada web-site - the web-site for people whose ancestors emigrated from England to Canada. If any of your ancestors came from England this web-site should help you find out some facts about them.
For instance, it will tell you:
The information on this site is provided by Dr. Lucille H. Campey - a recognised authority on emigration from Britain to Canada. It is based on her detailed research of English emigration to Canada which has been documented in three books. The first book, Planters, Paupers and Pioneers - English settlers in Atlantic Canada, was published in 2010. The second book, Seeking a Better Future: The English settlers of Ontario and Quebec was published in 2012. The third book, Ignored but not Forgotten: Canada's English Immigrants was published in 2014 and covers English emigration to the Prairie Provinces and British Columbia..
Said Lucille: "The English were numerically the largest ethnic group of settlers to come to Canada; arriving in much greater numbers than the Irish or Scots. In spite of this they have been widely ignored by historians. My three books represent the first ever comprehensive study of immigration from England to Canada. My research is ongoing and if you would like to send me any material that you might have on your English ancestors I would be delighted to receive it. At the same time, I am always happy to offer my own ideas and suggestions - so please write to me if you think I can help you with your family tree research.
