Daisy Brand and her sisters were not listed on the passenger list of the S. S. Sardinian when it docked in Quebec City in October, 1892, probably because much of the list was illegible. The children listed were in the care of Mr. Owen and they were bound for Hazelbrae, a home in Peterborough.

Young women in front of Hazelbrae, 1913. Barnardo homes were set up in Canada by Dr. Thomas Barnardo for homeless or destitute English children. Peterborough emerged as the main Canadian distribution centre for Barnardo children from 1889 to 1922. Hazelbrae was built by Thomas Belcher in 1872 for Alexander Smith. It was renovated in 1883 by George and Margaret Cox and donated to Dr. Barnardo. In 1923 it was destroyed by fire.
