H.M.S. Crocodile, Captain George Willes Watson, from Portsmouth April 20th 1869, arrived at Quebec May 6th 1869

This was the first emigration of unemployed Admiralty Dockyard Workers. The passengers for this trip were from Woolwich and Portsmouth. The Canadian arrival list can be seen at the Library and Archives of Canada website, however, there are some missing pages for the Portsmouth pages. A colleague, Patricia Lovell, searched many newspapers and found an informative article about the 1869 emigration, which included the names of the Portsmouth emigrants.

In 1869 and 1870 there were five such trips from Portsmouth to Quebec carrying the discharged Dockyard workers aboard British Troop ships ; one trip for Serapis, one for Simoom, one for Tamar and two for the Crocodile.
