18 Sep 1830 Smarden Removal order James Bridge and Charlotte his wife and their lawful child named James aged two years from Footscray (near London)
Removal orders were a sorry reflection of the reluctance of parishes to accept newcomers who were going to need support under the poor law, since each parish had to raise the money required from its own ratepayers. In this case, James and his family were sent back to Foots Cray, where Charlotte and her son James had been born.
