Folio 429

Draft letter from the Poor Law Commission to R M Hodge, Clerk to the Guardians of the Truro Poor Law Union, relating to the proposed emigration of Betsy Randall and her family whose husband has deserted her and gone to Quebec Canada. The Commission cannot sanction the expenditure of any money from the poor rate of the parish of Probus. They deem it highly improper that when a man has deserted his family and gone abroad, that his wife or family should be sent after him at the expense of the parish. If the husband has prospered in Quebec he must remit the funds to pay for the passage of his wife and family. (Paper Number: 8792/A/1842. Poor Law Union Number 57. Counties: Cornwall. Date 20 July 1842 Catalogue reference MH 12/1528/246 )

Folio 440.

Draft letter from the Poor Law Commission to R M Hodge, Clerk to the Guardians of the Truro Poor Law Union, regarding the emigration of Betsy Randall and her family to Quebec Canada. They cannot approve of a man leaving his wife and family in this country in such circumstances as to require parochial assistance to enable them to join him and to sanction such expenditure would encourage desertion in different forms. The case may well be worthy of consideration by individuals but will not justify an expenditure from the public funds of the Poor Law Commission. (Paper Number: 9506/A/1842. Poor Law Union Number 57. Counties: Cornwall. Date 19 Aug 1842 Catalogue reference MH 12/1528/256)

Folio 439

. Letter from Richard Michell Hodge, Clerk to the Guardians of the Truro Poor Law Union, to the Poor Law Commission, stating that in reply to the Commission's letter of 20 July, the husband of Betsy Randall did not desert his wife and family to emigrate to Quebec Canada. He went at his own expense with the sanction of the parishioners of Probus to gain employment in order to support his family better. During his absence his wife and family have become chargeable to the parish. The parishioners have unanimously agreed it right to afford assistance in the form of an advance of 7 for the passage of his wife and family to join him, which they hope the Commission will now sanction. The board agree with the principles laid down as to cases of desertion and would not sanction any payment for emigration purposes to families in such circumstances. (Paper Number: 9506/A/1842. Poor Law Union Number 57. Counties: Cornwall. Date 2 Aug 1842 Catalogue reference MH 12/1528/255)
