About Philip Henry Empey

of interest: Unsure if this concerns Philip Henry or his son Henry, but this receipt was received by the Cornwall museum concerning school fees paid: Cornwall Community Museum In The Wood House at the waterfront, Cornwall, Ontario, Canada

A handwritten receipt for school fees paid.

Lancaster (twp) 3rd of July 1834

Received from Mr. P. Empey the sum of one pound 19 shilling and 3 pence for school fees for 1833.

William Grant.

Phillip Empey had property on the Lot 22 on the Front Concession of Lancaster

While it is very difficult to translate this fee into today’s money, I think it would turn out to be much less than what we pay today.

This document was donated to the museum in 2016 from John Johnston of Toronto.
