Hi Penny,

I don't have anything for you on your Triggs, but did find a Scadding 
family arriving at Quebec in 1821 ... not sure whether this is the 
family you mention.

Oct 15   brig Lord Exmouth  [Capt] Samuel Barrett    21 Aug    [from] 
Plymouth    Mr. Scadding and family and six settlers

We only have two surviving steamboat records, from Quebec to Montreal, 
for 1821, the MALSHAM and the LADY SHERBROOKE.

In his diary he mentions on 22 Dec 1835 my ggg grandmother "Mrs. Triggs" and either my ggg grandfather or my gg grandfather (both were named William Triggs.) This was during Henry Scaddings years as a divinity student in England. He visited my family's home in Tedburn St. Mary, Devon, on that date, walking the 8 miles from Exeter for the purpose.

We have found no record of his immigration. I wonder if perhaps he might have gone first to Canada to the Scadding family -- other members of the Triggs family, the Illinois branch, emigrated in the late 1840's, and perhaps they might have gone to Canada first, also.
