Tom
This is a certificate of non possession of property. It basically states that they are not taxpapers on public records of this town. They don't possess assets or goods of any kind. They are not involved in industry. They live with the daily struggle of using their own arms. In other words, they are paupers, or destitute, as they don't possess anything.

To add to what I wrote earlier, there was a decree dated Dec 6 ,1865 which dictated that free legal aid be made available to those in need and this document was one of the requirements to obtain that aid
