SS Canada

The Green family came to Canada in 1906, traveling by train from Malton, North Riding of Yorkshire, west to Liverpool and overseas on the Dominion Line’s SS Canada. A British Bonus was given to assist them in financing their emigration.

A short-time beforehand, an auction at Welburn Lane Farm, Huttons Ambo had seen to the Greens divesting themselves of most of their farm and household equipment and goods. (Our family retains possession of a written account and record of all sales made that day.)
