Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Industrial School
« on: Thursday 14 May 09 22:59 BST (UK)  »
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.

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
