Description

IL-MELLIEĦA 1824 – 1889

A collection of Petitions presented by members of the Mellieħa community between 1824 and 1899.

Ġabra ta’ talbiet magħmula minn membri tal-komunita’ Melliħija bejn l-1824 u l-1899 – Volume 1

This collection of petitions presented to the British Government during the 19 Century seeks to delve into the inner feelings and wishes of the Mellieħa community of that era.

Each petition forms a link in the greater chain of everyday events and hardships that these people had to endure. Whenever they found themselves in dire straits, they looked up to the British authorities for help and oftentimes they were rewarded for their endeavours.

When put together, these sources of information make up a clearer picture of what life in Mellieħa looked like during the 19 Century, where most of the people were farmers and when the village itself was still being established as a residential zone.

Din il-ġabra ta’ petizzjonijiet li ġew ippreżentati lill-Gvern Ingliż matul is-Seklu 19 qegħda tfittex li tinżel fil-fond fil-qalb u fix-xewqat tal-komunita’ Melliħija ta’ dak iż-żmien.

Kull petizzjoni tippreżentalna ħolqa minn katina usa u ikbar ta’ ġrajjiet u tbatijiet li dak il-ġens kellu jgħaddi minnu. Kull meta kienu jsibu ruħħhom f’xi nkwiet, kienu jduru lejn l-Awtorijiet Brittaniċi għall-għajnuna u ħafna drabi kienu jġibuha żewġ.

Meta tpoġġihom ma’ xulxin, dawn is-sorsi ta’ tagħrif jifformaw stampa aktar ċara ta’ kif kienet il-ħajja fil-Mellieħa matul is-Seklu 19, fejn ħafna min-nies kienu bdiewa u meta r-raħal stess kien għadu qiegħed jiġi mfassal bħala żona residenzjali.
