Following the comments in "La Isla Bonita (La Palma, Canary Islands)". I am getting the impression that ‘Canary Islands’ is a foundling. At the moment it is not listed in HelpMeFind as such. ?

It is a foundling, discovered in Texas; "Canary Island Rose" is the study name.

My understanding is that William Welch gives a brief history of its having been brought to the San Antonio area of Texas by immigrants from the Canary Islands, but I don't have his book, 'Antique Roses for the South' to give the relevant quote in the references section.

I just came across this book the other day. There is not a lot of detail:

Antique Roses for the South, William C. Welch, p. 27

"This particular specimen had arrived many years before with immigrants from the Canary Islands. The immigrant rose had rooted well, forming a large thicket of canes."

photo caption:
"Greg Grant and Pam Puryear examine an old Gallica Rose in San Antonio as the owner explains that it originally came from the Canary Islands during the 1920s."

It looks a bit like an unmossy 'William Lobb'.
