Travel Tuesday~ 1913 The Cocklin's Leave England for Canada~

Allan Line steamship built 1901 at Belfast, Ireland by Workman, Clark Co. Ltd. The Ionian was mainly used for the conveyance of emigrants between Liverpool and Canadian ports.

On the 26th Day of June1913 my Great Grandparents, Daniel Cocklin and Alice Allen along with their 3 children, Alice (my Nana) ,Rose and Henry boarded the S.S. Ionian for a journey to a new land. After 13 days of sailing at sea they arrived in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on July 9th, 1913. According to the Ships manifest there where 647 Adults and 100 children on board when the Ionian sailed into port at 9:40 AM. While most of the information I found was things I already knew, the fact that my Great Grandfather had a brother already living in Canada was a surprise to me,  I have not been able to tie my Great Grandfather to a family, this gives me another place to search.
