Subject: [TSL] The Vessel Dorothy Year 1812 or 1815
Date: Sat, 29 Apr 2000 19:09:25 EDT


Would anyone know of a drawing of the Dorothy or a vessel similar to that? I
am going to copy from a hand written account of the landing of William
Holderness written in 1925.

William Holderness. Perth Ontario Canada Nov. 12th 1896
This letter states 1815 when all other information shows the date should be
1812. They landed at Quebec, Canada on the 4th of the following September.
They at once ascended the St. Lawrence river as far as Brockville where they
spent the winter of 1815 and 16 in a tempory hut.

This goes on and on, but what I am interested in is a description of the
Vessel they took over here from England at that time. Thank you so much.
Iona Holderness.
