In 1836, James Franks, his wife Justina and their son Charles travelled from London to York Factory on the ship Prince Rupert.

The family settled in the Red River area, where James worked as a farm servant at the 4th Experimental Farm, Hudson’s Bay Company at Lower Fort Garry until 1841. This well-loved wooden chair was made in 1839 for their children.
