The Petworth Project was a genealogical research project begun in 1989 and funded by Father Edward Jackman and the Jackman Foundation. Its object was the Petworth Emigration Scheme, one of a number of assisted emigration schemes in southern England in the 1830's. The Petworth Emigration Committee, organized by the Rev. Thomas Sockett and sponsored by the Earl of Egremont, chartered ships and sent emigrants from England to Upper Canada between 1832 and 1837.
