Taxation Assessment Notice - Issued to C Duffell, by State of Victoria, 12 Apr 1934 Document Reg. No: HT 8333

State Income Tax and Unemployment Relief Tax for C Duffell for the year 1933-1934. Based on Income for the year ending 30 June 1933.

Constance Duffell was born in England in 1910. She migrated to Australia with her parents and brother on the 'Narkunda' in 1927 aged 17. During the voyage Connie was accommodated with another girl (a stranger) on the lower deck while her mother, father and brother were on the upper deck together. Connie suffered seasickness until reaching Gibraltar.

Her father, Thomas Duffell was brought out to work at the Commonwealth Printing Branch as an engraver and transferrer; this was common apparently for workers to be imported as there was not enough local printing expertise at the time. In 1934 she married Archibald Gordon Maclaurin who had migrated from England in 1928 and worked at the Note Printing Branch. They had two children, Roger and Jocelyn and lived all their lives in Essendon.
Receipt slip entitled 1933-34 State Income Tax and Unemployment Relief Tax, 'Notice of Assessment, made out to Constance Duffell for the amount of 14 shillings and 11 pence.
