LIVERPOOL. Share. black on vellum. No 35. Folds. The tontine was a form of life insurance. The members (the residents of Colquitt Street) each paid in a fixed sum of money, on the head of a person, of a stated age. Those people were divided into groups, on the basis of the age of the person nominated. As each named person died, the money on his head was kept in the tontine. The last survivor in each group received the whole of the money subscribed in that group. Tontines were later banned since they encouraged murder! Printed on vellum.
