European Assurance Society
The European Assurance Company was an insurance company that declared its aim as the assurance of lives, annuities, and the guarantee of fidelity in situations of trust. Its main office was located in London with other branches expanding into the colonies, such as in Australia. Its principle goal was to protect the interests of the colonial life-policy holders and to assure that these “policy holders” were entitled to seek aid with the Court of Equity if it befitted them.1
