The journals are mostly those of the sons and grandsons of George Allsopp, secretary to Sir Guy Carleton 1768-1775. In the correspondence there are some letters written by George Allsopp. The collection seems to be mostly connected with his son Carleton Allsopp's family and preserved by Carleton's son, John Charles Allsopp who married into the McCorkill family at Farnham.

The correspondence, journals, land papers, give most interesting information about how George Allsopp received land grants; on the business of running the seigneuries of Jacques Cartier and d'Auteuil; the education of George Allsopp's sons; the business of the Allsopps in England; life at the Manor House at Cap Sante in the 1830's; the grandsons efforts to protect their interests in the Farnham Lands and the business run by the McCorkills in Farnham over a period of one hundred years.
