Balsall Heath History Society Exhibitions

2022 marks the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Children’s
Emigration Homes in Highgate, founded by John Middlemore.
Between the years 1873 and 1954 they emigrated over 5000
deprived children chiefly to Canada but also to Australia aiming to
give them children the opportunity of a better life. For many years
the children went to farming families in the remote backwoods of
Canada and then later to Fairbridge Farm Schools in both Canada
and Australia.
