Cattle Boat Arrivals - Port of Quebec - 1884

The following is extracted from the Sessional Papers, Government of Canada, 48 Victoria (8) 1885 and lists the ships arriving carrying cattle. The cattle were placed in quarantine and thus the list. (The destinations for the cattle are of interest as many were on their way to the US mid-west.) Many people report that their families came to Canada on a "cattle boat" but there are only a few of these vessels listed as carrying passengers. Many of these ships were of the Donaldson Line and the Dominion Line with only a few from the Allan Line. Of the three lines, the Dominion Line was more likely to carry both passengers and cattle. Although the Helvetia did bring passengers in 1884 she did not bring them on the voyage listed below. The Grecian of June 5; Norwegian of June 25; Nestorian of August 29; Lake Nepigon of September 16 and Brooklyn of November 4; Buenos Ayrean of October 11-12, all had passengers onboard.
