Re: Arthur George Peacock born hanham 1914

I realise that your message regarding Arthur George Peacock is a few months old & you may have your answer, but there is a record of an Arthur Peacock aged 14 sailing to Quebec Canada on 19th April 1929. His last known address is shown as c/o Dr Barnado's Home, London. The ship was the Duchess of York. There were 25 boys who all appear to being going out to work on farms & show their intended permanent intended residence as Canada. It appears they were travelling with a Mr Ernest Young aged 62 who also says he is c/o Dr Barnados Homes, 18 Stepney Causeway, London. His future intended res' is England, so he would be coming back.

Hope that may help.
