Research Project Outline

Middlemore Home Arrival of June 9, 1913

This British Home Children (BHC) Research Project came about after wanting to learn more about the children who traveled with my great-grandfather, Fred Walker (age 9), to Middlemore Home in 1913.

The goal of this multi-year project, is to research all of the children listed on the Canadian Passenger List for the S.S. Mongolian arriving at Halifax, Nova Scotia on 9 Jun 1913 – destined to Middlemore’s Fairview Home. There are 110 children who are included in the project outline.

As each child is researched, data will be included for later analysis – to be shared on this website as well to understand the dynamics of the children aboard the ship (ages, boys vs. girls, etc.)
