[BOOKS 2-4] Canada Company Remittance Books 1843-1847 in 3 Volumes.
There is a great deal of genealogical information in the Canada Company Remittance Books. The Canada Company sent money to friends and family members of settlers in Canada. The books record the receipt of the sent money in England, the recipient, the sender, and the destination. Often the occupation of the recipient is noted, as is the exact location and relationship of the sender. This invaluable set of records in book form extracts the names of people receiving money, people sending money, where the money was sent (in care of), location of both sender and recipient, and notations of genealogical value such as "if recipient deceased, money to go to her daughter Mary".
