The Petworth Emigration project is a case study of a successful scheme of assisted emigration in the 1830s that sent some 1800 emigrants from Sussex and neighbouring counties in England to Upper Canada (Ontario). Since the publication of two books in 2000 the project has used this website to summarize results, add information, and identify new names. A Facebook page and a Facebook group offer another forum for descendants of Petworth emigrants.
