Summary
" This paper seeks to draw welfare and Indigenous history into the same analytic frame by analysing the religious impulses underpinning ideas about welfare for Indigenous people and poor whites in a period of acute transition for the poor law between 1815 and the 1830s. During these years the conceptual framework for the new poor law (less eligibility, pauperisation, indoor relief) came to dominate attitudes towards poor whites, particularly in the Australian convict colonies where poverty was frequently associated with vice, but lurked uncertainly around the edges of discourse regarding Aborigines. Even when it came to be directed at Aborigines, concerns over the issue of compensation lingered to distinguish the white poor from 'the poor Aboriginal'. [ authors abstract ] ; compares a number of schemes for the assimilation and 'improvement' of Aborigines in New South Wales between 1814 and 1824; differentiates the rights of Aboriginal people from those of the poor white population; examines the New Poor Law and its application to convicts, poor whites and Aborigines; the significance of the distribution of blankets to Aboriginal people; includes discussion on Benevolent Society of New South Wales
