MANCHESTER POOR LAW UNION WEEKLY RETURNS AND MINUTES 

 

ON this page you will find extracts from the weekly reports the meetings of the Manchester Poor Law  Union Guardians. For those of you interested in the workings of the Poor Law Unions, this will give you a fascinating insight into what actually happened  in Manchester with regards to the care of the inmates. There were all kinds of wards in the infirmaries, medical, surgical and many others. Anyone who had a relative who worked in the Manchester Workhouses may be able to find where, when and how much they were paid for their work. What was the difference between Indoor and Outdoor Relief; who qualified for assistance  etc? All employees, having gained sufficient service, could be provided with a pension e.g. "that a Superannuation Allowance not exceeding two thirds of her annual emoluments to be granted (under the provisions of Act 27 & 28 Vict Cap 42) to Elizabeth Mellor, upon her ceasing to hold situation of Washerwoman at the Swinton Schools."  Many workhouse employees were also provided with rations, washing and lodging. I THINK THAT THIS RESEARCH HAS BEEN UNDER VALUED. It is a "goldmine" of information relating to the Manchester Workhouse system.

I have covered (with some gaps) the period from 1843 until 26th June 1948. Some other Manchester and Chorlton Union Records can been seen on Find My Past.

General Administration of Indoor And Outdoor Relief (M4/2/1-45)

This consists of Weekly Returns labelled as Form A made at first to the Assistant poor Law Commissioner and then later to the Poor Law Inspector. They are the returns of the indoor and outdoor relief giving the numbers inmates at Manchester, Blackley and Prestwich Workhouses and the amounts of relief given in the various districts. The details supplied to the Poor Law Inspector also included the returns of vagrants relieved and lunatics cared for in asylums. At the end of March 1930 these returns were for the benefit of what was known as the Manchester Public Assistance Committee. In mid October 1941 this responsibility was transferred to the Manchester Social Welfare Committee.

Below these tables was a summary of the numbers of paupers belonging to each Relieving Officer's District. District number 1 being the area covered by the New Bridge Street Workhouse; District Number 2 being the area covered by the Blackley Workhouse and District Number 3 being the area covered by the Prestwich Workhouse.

It appears that the Blackley and Prestwich Workhouse were smaller relief workhouses with the former dealing with boys/youths and the latter dealing with girls.

There is a gap of 4 years between the first and second volumes in this collection during which time premises on both Canal St and Tib St were used. The Swinton Schools were opened in 1846.

Canal Street changed name to Fever Hospital and Tib street to House of Industry first week of June 1851

Report 13th December 1849

Mr Greig gave notice of his intention to move at the next weekly meeting of Board of the 27th instant that the infliction on innocent persons, without process of Law, of Oakham picking and madder grinding, a punishment worse that the tread mill, to which criminals can only be sentenced after conviction by a legally competent tribunal, is unjust to the Poor, a great discouragement to honesty, and by destroying the self respect, industrious habits and independent spirit of those so treated, increases and perpetuates pauperism.

That the maintaining in idleness or providing intentionally useless (in lieu of productive) work for the unemployed, is contrary to all sound economy, to the policy of existing and previous Poor Laws, to the declared opinions of the Poor law Commissioners and to the pecuniary interest of the Ratepayer, whose [burdens] have thereby during the last ten years been enormously increased.

That the report just published of all Her Majesty's Inspectors of Parochial Schools demonstrate that (beside the moral advantages of a change of system), milk, vegetables and other food for the supply of Workhouses and Out Door Relief, which now cost a large sum annually to the Union, may be produced by the labour of unemployed persons (juvenile and adult) which is now wasted and unproductive.

That the School and Industrial Committees of this Board be therefore instructed in compliance with the recommendations of the Poor Law Commissioners, and of Her Majesty's Inspector of Schools, to provide agricultural and other useful labour and industrial instruction for the Poor now and hereafter chargeable to the Union.

For some reason there was a long gap where no remarks were recorded.

Mr Sever gave notice that he should then move the following resolution:

That this board declines , for the following reasons, to take any part in any joint action of Boards of Guardians for the purpose of securing that “the expense of what is required for sick paupers in workhouse hospitals beyond the ordinary cost of pauper maintenance should be provided by county or national funds”:-

That the circumstances and requirements of Boards of Guardians and Unions throughout the country are so diverse, that no practical measure, equally applicable to all, for the satisfactory carrying out of the proposed changes, can, in the opinion of this Board, be framed.

That the deferral of the attendant expense of any such measure, even if practicable, out of a county or national rate would be objectionable, as it would greatly enhance the cost and increase the centralising power of poor law administration, by necessitating the appointment of an additional staff of officials, would lessen the sense of responsibility of Boards of Guardians, and encourage an improvident expenditure from the knowledge that it would be partly defrayed out of the national purse.

That the much higher system of medical treatment and nursing, and the other advantages, sought to be introduced into workhouse hospital by the proposed measures would tend to the provident habits and self reliance of the industrious poor, by providing for them therein far better accommodation and treatment than they can usually for themselves in case of sickness.

That this Board has constantly in its workhouses an aggregate average of 1,000 hospital patients, who receive at all times, in accordance with the wishes and instructions of the Guardians, such medical treatment as the medical officers deem necessary; and the Board is fully convinced that the attendant cost is less, and the system fraught with fewer evils, that would result from a county or national rating for this purpose.

That, whilst the Board is fully aware that much remains to be done for the improvement of poor law administration, it is of the opinion that this will be best effected by each Board of Guardians submitting separately to the Poor Law Board from time to time its own particular requirements and views, leaving it to that Board to embody them in well-digested practical measures calculated for general application.
