"a "transient person" does not exactly mean a person on a journey from one place to another, but rather, a wanderer ever on the tramp."

"The word "transient" is the opposite of "resident".

"Transient person", as used in Act 1797 relating to the legal settlement of a pauper who is a transient person, is not to be understood in a strict, literal sense. It includes all who do not have a legal settlement in a town, and those who have come into a town to reside, but have not gained a settlement in a town, and those who have not gained a settlement therein. It has become settled by repeated decisions that a person confined in a jail is a transient person. A person who goes into a town other than that in which his family resides, to work, and does actually work on a contract for labor, is a transient person.

I've omitted citations in the interest of wasting no more time on this. See the book if you really feel moved to pursue further.

I am not making this shit up. Address any further controversy to the authors.
