GUEST SPEAKER for 28th July 2021
Helen Smith – Distressed Cotton Operatives Emigration Scheme to Queensland 1863.
“Free passage for 1000 statute adults” was the humanitarian response by the Queensland Government to the Cotton Operatives crisis in England in the 1860’s. Fifteen ships of the Black Ball Line brought the eventual 1376 statue adults in 1863. We’ll look at the crisis and its causes, the Queensland public response, the Immigration Agent Henry Jordan’s response and some interesting ring-ins that came out under the scheme.
Come and join in to Listen and then talk to Helen after her presentation. Wednesday 28th July 2021.
