Folios 379-380

Letter from Mr. Saunders to the Poor Law Commission stating that the previous March the Guardians of the Blything Poor Law Union were supplied with two vessels - the Allendah and Albian- for the conveyance of their poor emigrants to Quebec from Lowestoft. Terms were agreed and a contract entered into. He received payment after he had arranged the first vessel. The ship's master before boarding the emigrants demanded of the guardians who were in Lowestoft supervising the embarkation, a security regarding the poll tax claimed by the Colonial Government. The guardians assured Captain Alcock that all the emigrants had funds to pay the tax. If they had not he would be reimbursed. Proper application for poll tax was made on arrival in Quebec. The emigrants either could or would not pay. After the emigrants had been on board in Quebec for 24 hours, the master had to allow them to leave. The customs made the master pay the poll tax and gave him a receipt. Captain Alcock of the Allendale paid 35 12s 6d. while Captain Thompson of the Albion paid 42 16s 9d.
