SMITH, P re BRADSHAW's Party, 1820 Settler

(see correspondence of Bransby COOPER at CO48/42)

National Archives, Kew CO48/45, 1077

[from P. SMITH, who worked at the Colonial Office]

13 Nov 1819

Memorandum

I send herewith to Mr. GOULBURN the original return of Mr. COOPER's people, from which it will appear that the several items of deposit money have been charged in conformity with the Regulations – and consequently that every single extra child, as it is called, has been charged at £2 10s and not at £5 as has been stated by Mr. COOPER.

In the family of the last person on the list there is a girl aged 17 returned among the children of a settler whose age is stated to be 23. She was therefore charged £10 as a sister, servant or stranger to the family.

Mr. COOPER's calculations of the amount of deposit money which BRADSHAW will have to pay in consequence of reductions and alterations in his list are not correct. But in order to do away all misunderstanding I shall send to Mr. COOPER a copy of BRADSHAW's Return as it will now stand, accompanied by the several charges of deposit money.

P.S.

[Transcriber's Note: Although the name of Richard BRADSHAW and his family have been crossed out, it seems that Richard did sail with his brother Samuel in 1820, leaving his family behind. See his letter to his wife in 1833 (Post 1820 letters)]
