Details: Expressing concern for the fate of eleven children whose mothers were due to sail on the ship Canada in 1817, Robert Harding made much of his arrangement to have the two youngest accepted at the foundling hospital of which he was governor, achieving even that only by what he considered a very circuitous route. The older children could not be got in by any means and so he asked the Chief Secretary for permission to send them with their mothers. There was apparently abundant room on board, as the ship had been chartered for l00 and provided with all kinds of necessities for that number. He believed that not more than 86 or 88 females would be fit to be sent, and probably the surgeon of the Canada will object even to some of these. The Chief Secretary answered that he did not have the power, and that application must be made to the colonial secretary (NAI, CSO OP/1817/932). Nothing appears to have been done about the matter but shortly afterwards the victualling agent asked that they be allowed to sail: I really do not know what is to become of the poor children of the female convicts, as there is no place here to receive them, and they cannot be taken from the prison and thrown in the streets. As there is abundance of room in the ship, a small allowance of porridge would be the only expense to government and it would be a great comfort to the poor women (NAI, CSO OP/1817/932) http://www.nationalarchives.ie/topics/transportation/transp3.html
