My Imeson ancestors from North Yorkshire we’re stone masons. Several family members worked on Bradford Cathedral. Most of the family emigrated in 1842, landing in New York City, then dispersing throughout the US ( Washington State, Ohio, Kentucky) and Kent County Ontario. I am wondering if there was an assisted immigration program to bring stone masons to North America to help in building canals?
I am interested in lead ore miners in Northumberland, England. My Liddle ancestors were lead miners, then emigrated to Canada in the 1860’s when the mines were running out.
My grandfather was a carman in England late 1890's to 1904. I understand this description could be some one with the railroads but also as a driver of carriages in London. Does anyone know how to look up this occupation?
Any suggestions appreciated.
