M is for Migration

Barry Reay wrote that we ‘cannot truly understand a community unless we look at those who leave’ and you could add ‘and why they might have done so’. We have been collating details of those who left Buckland Brewer for overseas destinations. As much information as possible has been gathered about these individuals both before and after their departure. The list of those we have discovered so far can be found here. If you know anything about those on the list, or have other Buckland Brewer emigrants that you can add, please get in touch.

Fulfords of Canada

Just received this wonderful photograph from Port Hope Archives in Canada. Several members of the Fulford family left Buckland Brewer for Port Hope and other parts of Canada. This is the family shop in Port Hope.
