Destitute Emigrants at Montreal

Destitute Immigrants per steamer Juno September 5th 1844

This is a list of head-of-household of immigrant families assisted to proceed to Bytown (Ottawa), by the Government Emigration Officer. The numbers of, and age-range of accompanying family members is noted beside each name, with the intended final destination. They may have received additional assistance, after arrival at Ottawa.
The Juno was not the sailing vessel on which they had arrived, but one of the river steamers which carried the immigrants inwards from the arrival port. . (Note: "- do -" is used for ditto and appears that way in the original.)
