This web-site, dedicated to Canada’s
English pioneers, is based on original research carried out by Dr. Lucille H.
Born in Ottawa, Lucille obtained a B. Sc from the University of Ottawa and
worked initially as a computer scientist for Canadian Industries Ltd. near
Montreal. After marrying Geoff she moved to England and began training to become
an historian. After studying Scottish emigration to Canada for a number of
years, Lucille acquired a Ph D from the University of Aberdeen. Lucille and
Geoff Campey now live near Salisbury in England.
Having written eight books on Scottish emigration to Canada (see
www.scotstocanada.com) Lucille went on to study English emigration to Canada
and has now completed two books covering Atlantic Canada and Ontario and Quebec.
A third book, which is still to be written, will describe the English in western
Canada. Together the three books, all published by Dundurn, form a series titled
The English in Canada and represent the first-ever comprehensive and
detailed study ever to be carried out of English emigration to Canada.
Geoff Campey was born in Chester, England. He graduated in mathematics
and worked for many years as a manager in the chemical industry. He started
his industrial career in 1960 when he worked on one of the early
scientific computers. He has been fascinated by computers ever since. Geoff helps
with the research; produces the ships lists, maps, tables and bibliography used in Lucille's books.
He also finds the illustrations and
takes photographs to be used in the books. He designed this web site.
