Poor in Douglas (supported by House of Industry) - 1869

These are the names taken from the returns made to High Bailiff Harris from the 1869 questionnaire re Poor Relief - they formed part of a much larger return for Douglas area. The questionaire asked for status as of 31st Dec 1868 with the date of submission c. 31 March 1869.

The original table had columns for Nationality (all Manx unless shown), those partially dependent on charity shown (p).

Judging from the alphabetic order it would appear that two lists were conflated to produce this list.

Two further lists give additional names as well as further details about many of those on the HoI list - these details are shown within {}.
