BOY IMMIGRANTS TO NEW ZEALAND
1914
THE 'SUFFOLK' BOYS

The following is the third group of fifty boys who were brought to New Zealand as boy immigrants before the outbreak of the First World War. They were brought out to alleviate a shortage of farming boys and were to be trained in all aspects of farming life as well as clothed and fed. Their wages were to be paid to the Labour Department while they were given weekly pocket money.

The first group of boys were organised by Thomas Edward Sedgwick of London, and arrived in Wellington on the 25 January 1911 on board the ss ATHENIC - see Sedgwick Boys.

The second group of fifty arrived in Auckland on the 20 January 1914 on board the ss AYRSHIRE. This third group arrived on board the ss SUFFOLK which arrived in Auckland on the 1 March 1914.

The Ayrshire and Suffolk boys were also often referred to as Sedgwick Boys though strictly they were not as they were under a Labour Department scheme based on Sedgwick's scheme. The Ayrshire and Suffolk boys were from all over the United Kingdom, rather than just East London and Liverpool.

None of the boys were named in the Department of Labour yearly returns to the AJHR's (Appendix to the Journals of the House of Representatives) and according to research by Anne Lemon in 1984 on the original Sedgwick boys, the Labour Department files were destroyed in the Hope Gibbons Building fire in Wellington in 1952.

Lists have been made from the passenger lists - see Ancestry - UK Outward Passenger Lists, 1890-1960.

Unfortunately as with the Ayrshire boys, the Suffolk boys were not listed together on the passenger list or marked in any way. However many of the boys signed up for service during the First World War and appear in the UK census records, which has made tracing them slightly easier. For the New Zealand Military Files marked On Line see - ARCHIVES NEW ZEALAND

With the Suffolk boys, I have 63 names as I am unable to ascertain which were the 50 (sometimes listed as 51) boys who came under the Labour Department scheme.

PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS WORK IN PROGRESS
If you are able to help with any of these boys I would be most pleased to hear from you. PLEASE REMEMBER with UK Births, Deaths and Marriages the Month given is the Quarter ie Jan/Feb/March, Apr/May/June, Jul/Aug/Sep and Oct/Nov/Dec.
