Irish Removals From England,

From Ancestry - "Our latest Irish collection, Ireland, Poor Law Union Removals From England, 1859-1860, gives us a window in to what life was like as an Irish pauper living in the UK in the late 1850’s. Irish paupers were often looked upon negatively, as an unwanted expense on the local communities in which they resided across England, Scotland and Wales." https://blogs.ancestry.co.uk/ancestry/2017/05/25/an-alien-act-against-the-irish-the-poor-law-removal-law-statute-8-9-vict-c-117/
