From Brede (Folios 376-380)
Folios 393-395Letter from Henry Edwards Paine, Clerk to the Guardians of the Rye Poor Law Union, to the Poor Law Commission about emigration from Brede. He encloses bills for expenses to assist the families of Batcup and Noakes in their emigration to Canada. The families were unable to purchase bedding and clothing and had been an expense to the parish of Brede for a long time. The circumstances of the two families were examined by the parish officers and the rector, Reverend Maker, who decided that there was no possibility of the families being able to purchase clothing and bedding for the voyage unless more than the authorised amount was spent. The little money the families possessed was spent on arrears of rent and small debts. He requests that in view of the circumstances the Commission will allow the expenses to be paid out of the Brede emigration funds. He requests the return of the bills as they will be required at the audit due shortly. Annotated: to return the bill. The Commissioners will not object to the auditor allowing the expenses if he thinks fit except for the paying of 17 s to one of the emigrants which is against the principles laid down by the commission.
