[TSL] Cornwall to Canada - trip details
Carol Collins <collinscarol@hotmail.com> on 10/05/2012

The article details a trip first on the ship "Clio" to Quebec, then by steamboat from Quebec to Montreal.  From Quebec immigrants travelled by a series of flat-bottomed Durham boats.  Durham boats had no propulsion and were drawn by a steam-tug up the Lachine canal to Lachine, Vaudreuil, then along the Ottawa river to Ottawa.  From the Ottawa river, immigrants continued their travel on the Durham boats through the locks to the Rideau Canal, then along the Rideau Canal to Kingston. From Kingston they travelled by the lake steamer "Royal Mail Line", with ports of call at Coburg and Port Hope.  From Port Hope, the immigrants travelled by wagon to Oshawa, where they settled.  The year was 1841.
