MAIL TO AN INDENTURED INDIAN LABOURER "No.531" AT VALLEY ESTATE, Jamaica postal history
1901 use of India QV ½ anna PSE (indicia damaged) reg. to Indian indentured labourer "No. 531" at Trinity Valley Estate addressed Pershad Kewat c/o The Govt emigration agent for Jamaica at Kingston pmk'd AHRAULA 12 OC 01 with additional QV ½a, 2 x QV 1a stamps on reverse pmk'd MAHUL (and taken to Ahraula for frontal registration) and additionally tied by both SEA POST OFFICE A/19 OC 01 cds and JAMAICA REGISTERED d/ring oval dated NO 22 01, this full of character small cover from a family member would display perfectly should it be opened-out.
Pershad Kewat was an indentured Indian labourer from Fatehpore (Fatehpur), Mahul in Azamgarh. He came to Jamaica as passenger 531 in 1899 on the vessel Rhine (launched in Port Glasgow in 1885 and mainly carried indentured Indians to the Colonies until 1907). The 14 may be a reference to the voyage number. There were 615 passengers on that voyage, the only occasion the Rhine visited Jamaica. It seems he was at Trinity Valley Estate (although possibly Unity), but had to be located through the Government immigration agent.
