Folio 158

. Draft letter from the Poor Law Commission, to Charles Bond, Clerk to the Guardians of the Axminster Poor Law Union, acknowledging his letter of 8 August 1843, enclosing emigration papers. The Parish of Hawkchurch agreed to raise 25 for Jane Jeffery and 12 for James Stokes, and the Parish of Membury agreed to raise 12 for Joseph Henley to emigrate to Canada.

The Commission wish to know the items on which the money given is intended to be spent. They add that it is likely that the emigrants will not reach Canada until the middle of October, which will be too near winter for them to obtain employment. The chief agent for the Commission in Canada names the end of June as being the latest at which emigrants should leave. (Paper Number: 9419/A/1843. Poor Law Union Number 76.

Folio 175

. Draft letter from the Poor Law Commission to Charles Bond, Clerk to the Guardians of the Axminster Poor Law Union, relating to the proposed emigration of Jane Jeffrey and her family to Canada from the parish of Hawkchurch. In response to his letter of 6 September, the Commissioners state they cannot deviate from the usual procedures in respect of the emigration of paupers. They cannot therefore sanction the guardians advancing money from Union funds for this purpose. They regret that information specified in their letter of 12 August was not supplied so that they might have issued an order confirming the resolution at the parish meeting held on 20 July to raise 25. ( Paper Number: 10793/A/1843. Poor Law Union Number 76. Counties: Devon and Dorset. Date 9 Sept 1843 Catalogue reference MH 12/2097/98 )

Folios 187-188

. Letter from James Rudge, Rector of Hawkchurch, to the Poor Law Commission, regarding the emigration of Jane Jeffrey and her six children to Canada, to whom the parishioners of Hawkchurch agreed to give 25. It appears from a letter of 13 August to Charles Bond, Clerk to the Guardians of the Axminster Poor Law Union, that the Commission consider the season is so far advanced that it is doubtful the family could get employment on arrival. He encloses a letter from the father of Jane Jeffrey, which indicates that she will be welcomed by her family, and hence there is no doubt of them being supported. Therefore the grounds for objection are removed, and it is therefore hoped that they can leave by the first vessel that sails, and not be delayed until next spring. (Paper Number: 9419/A/1843. Poor Law Union Number 76. Counties: Devon and Dorset. Date 18 Sept 1843 Catalogue reference MH 12/2097/108)

Folio 190

. Letter from the Poor Law Commission to Charles Bond, Clerk to the Guardians of the Axminster Poor Law Union, regarding the proposed emigration of Jane Jeffrey and her family from the parish of Hawkchurch. Further to their letter of 9 September they inform him that they have learned from the Reverend Dr Rudge that the family propose to emigrate to the United States of America, and thence to enter Canada. They inform him that this it is contrary to regulation to allow parochial funds of any parish to be applied in the emigration of poor persons to the United States of America, and this is set out in their 8th Annual Report, page 38. (Paper Number: 11123/A/1843. Poor Law Union Number 76. Counties: Devon and Dorset. Date 20 Sept 1843 Catalogue reference MH 12/2097/110)

Folios 191-192

. Letter from James Rudge, Rector of Hawkchurch, to the Poor Law Commission, regarding the emigration of Jane Jeffrey, acknowledging their letter of 20 September, with a copy of the 8th Annual Report. He was aware of the conditions, and acknowledges the reasoning behind the ban on use of parochial funds for emigration to the United States. However in the current case, he believes it would be permissible as the family intend to join Jeffrey's father, who, although living in the United States when he wrote to her, has now moved to Canada. His fear is that unless she goes now while her father is alive and in good circumstances, she will never leave the parish. Annotated: the circumstances outlined remove the difficulty previously preventing support, but that the season is already too advanced for her to leave, and the Commissioners will sanction departure taking place at the start of Spring. (Paper Number: 11439/A/1843. See also Paper Number: 11123/A/1843. Poor Law Union Number 76. Counties: Devon and Dorset. Date 23 Sept 1843 Catalogue reference MH 12/2097/111 )

Folio 193

. Draft letter from the Poor Law Commission to the Reverend Dr Rudge, Hawkchurch, regarding the emigration of Jane Jeffrey and acknowledging his letter of 23 September in which it is stated that her father wrote from the United States but is now resident in Canada. The Commissioners state that this now removes the difficulties, and they will sanction the emigration. But as it is now too late in the year for this to take place, they recommend it occurs in spring of the coming year. (Paper Number: 11459/A/1843. Poor Law Union Number 76. Counties: Devon and Dorset. Date 27 Sept 1843 Catalogue reference MH 12/2097/112 )
