Petitions, resolutions, and addresses of the Legislative Assembly and Council of PEI re free trade, land issues, legislative and judicial system, etc.

  • CA PCA Acc4283
  • Fonds
  • 1841-1842

The fonds consists of several despatches, with enclosures, from Governors- General Fitzroy and Huntley to Lords Russell and Stanley respectively from May 1841 to July 1842, and acknowledgments and responses by the British Government. The enclosures include petitions to allow Island corn and produce into the British market duty-free, resolutions outlining the opposing positions and desires of the Legislative Council and Legislative Assembly on the issue of land tenure and fishery reserves, complaints about the high cost of crown lands being sold off in Princetown and the "family compact" nature of the Executive Council. There is also a report of the Central Agricultural Society Charlottetown and a communication from Chief Justice Jarvis regarding the necessity of appointing an assistant judge of the Supreme Court.

During the years of colonial government in Prince Edward Island there was a voluminous correspondence between the Lieutenant-Governor and the Colonial Office. Despatches often included enclosures of petitions and resolutions of the legislative bodies and of individuals or groups, as well as copies of official documents such as the journals and statutes of the legislature. Sir Charles A. Fitzroy served as Lieutenant-Governor from 1837 to 1841 when he was replaced by Sir Henry Vere Huntley. The colony's legislature was going through a particularly acrimonious time in the on-going dispute between tenant and landlord and the call for escheat, with the House of Assembly representing the tenants' interests while the Legislative Council adamantly opposed any change to the system of land tenure.
