Hi Nell

Thanks for trying to have a look for me.

I tried that link you posted, but the only Industrial Schools I could find there were Winchester IS and Purbrook IS.

I have been pulling my hair out over this for years, and am no further forward from the day I started trying to find out about my great grandmother's roots.

I have told my grandmother that the only solution is that when she joins her mother she will have to ask her and then come and visit me one night with the information!

Ah well.....

Thanks again


Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Industrial School

Hi all

I am trying to find out about the Portsmouth and Hampshire Industrial School for girls.

In 1891 the school was in Waterloo Southampton Hampshire.

The reason for my interest is that I think my great grandmother was an inmate there in 1891 aged 8. Her name was Emily BROOK(E)S.

I have never managed to find a birth certificate for her despite looking for 5 years either side of the year she said she was born (April 1882), and on her marriage certificate she did not know who her father was.

In the 1901 census Emily gives her place of birth as Aldershot Hampshire. She was by this time living in Surrey.

Any information on this particular Industrial School, especially if it is known that admittance registers still exist, would be most welcome.

I had a look on the NBI 2nd edition, and there is no Charles How/e buried in 1880 noted.

Sorry  :(

Hi all

Thanks for all the input  :)

That Henry is a possibility - I'll have to check that out.

With the Eastbourne, I have had a look at the original (through Ancestry) and it definately looks like Eastbourne not Easebourne to me.

As you say Sillgen, a long job ahead!

Once again, thank you all.

Thanks for the replies Gougy and Chris.

I appreciate the help enormously  ;D

Looks like I will just have to keep searching, and hope that one day something turns up.

Thanks again

Hi Chris

Thanks for the welcome.

Perhaps I should have made my query a bit more specific - what I am trying to find is a record of John's baptism.

There is nothing on the IGI that ties up to the information I have gleaned, and quite a few years ago I checked the Hellingly PR's, to no avail. The Rotherfield PR's have no John HOADL(E)Y's either.

It would seem that John didn't know where he was born, which doesn't bode well for me!   :'(

Ah well, who said genealogy was easy??!!!

Hi all

I wonder if there is anyone out there that could point me in the right direction?

I am at a brickwall with my ggg grandfather, John Hoadley.
Here is what I have found out about him:

1851 census - aged 17, born in Hellingly
1854 marriage cert - aged 21, father Henry, a farmer
1861 census - aged 27, born in Eastdean
1871 census - aged 38, born in Eastbourne
1881 census - aged 50, born in Rotherfield
1891 census - aged 56, born in Rotherfield
1901 census - aged 66, born in Rotherfield

As you can see, there are conflicting ages and birth places, but I know that each census entry is the same John Hoadley.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can find him amongst all this???

Any clues gratefully received   ;D
