Found in the Canadian Archives about the settlers.

Born in Birmingham, England - Barnardo took him into care in 1902, and he was sent to Canada on 20th Mar 1903, on the "Canada", destination Toronto. On arrival he was placed with a Mr Leonard Parker at Newbliss, Ontario. He stayed with that family until about 1908 (15 yrs) and is then supposed to have gone working on the Railroads.Thereafter I do not know what happened to him, the last report from Barnardo was dated 1909 saying he re visited Leonard Parker in the winter of 1908/9 and was working as a "Firer" on the railways. Family lore says he joined the CEF during WW1 and died in France, but this is not proven.
