KEWLEY Family British Home Children to Eastern Ontario, Canada

New April 15, 2015:

Thanx for getting back to me Allan…
 
Here are my KEWLEY family additions to your Home Children list…. It is only recently that the family learned that all the 
kids were sent over as “orphans” when in fact the parents were still alive in Douglas Isle of Man…. Its made for some pretty 
interesting research!  Actually I just noticed while putting the table together below that George and Elizabeth were 
sponsored by the same family! 

All came from Douglas Industrial School IOM to Quarries (Bridge of Weir) in Scotland to the Fairknowe Home in Brockville Ontario.
