Handwriting Assistance Requested
« on: Tuesday 23 February 21 22:39 GMT (UK) »
I can't quite make out the writing after "Mary Landy", towards the bottom of this character reference for an emigrant to Australia in 1841/42. Any assistance appreciated - last word seems to be "child"?

Hi Wexflyer,

It reads 'Under their protection a neighbours child'.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

Doesn't make a lot of sense in the context, but ...
under their protection
a neighbors child

Thank you all! What I think  it is saying then is that they are taking Mary Landy with them to Australia - a neighbor's child.

Australian records say wife and child perished on the voyage.
