Thank you very much diddymiller. We now seem to have accounted with some certainty for 8 or possibly 9 of Lucy Addleton's children namely
Sarah Ann (Selby) b 1863 d 28/12/1878
Emma (Selby) b 5/1865 d 4 June 1865
Louisa Addleton b 1866 d 2/1900
William Henry b 1868 d 1934
Harriet b 1871
Arthur b 1873 d 3/1/1874
Clara b 1874
Eliza Ellen b 1877 d 19/12/1877

and possibly
Elizabeth b 1869 d 1869

So if Lucy herself was correct when she asserted in 1911 that she had had 16 children of whom 3 were living and 13 had died we are still missing 7. There were three living in 1911 (William Henry, Clara and Harriet) so she was right about that at least.

Lucy was 37 when Eliza Ellen was born in 1877 so in theory  she may have had several more years in which she could bear more children. I have not yet been able to analyse all the data to see if there are any other gaps where a full term baby could have been born in the earlier period. Today all children who are born alive have to be registered even if they die within a very short time. Does anyone know what was the custom and practice in the 1860/1870s? Would a baby which was born alive but died immediately after birth be registered or receive a normal burial?

Dusty2 -Rummaging around on the net I found an image of the Register for Norton Reformatory for one Joseph Pagett dated 1875. It was on the connecting histories site. I notice that each entry has a photograph of the inmate on admission attached. Will the entry for John William Winfield also carry a photo? Where are these original records kept? I would very much like to lay my hands on a copy of that photo if it exists!

Dusty2 I just read your piece about the site of Saltley Reformatory School. I am astonished to find that it was on Fordrough Lane and that the land was taken over by the Post Office. I used to work for BT and visited the BT factory on Fordrough Lane which may well be on  the same site. Now I am really intrigued! Is there an extant photo of the school?

Dusty2 one other thought just struck me. When he joined the Army John William Winfield gave his profession as Musician and so appears throughout his army service. Given his upbringing in Loughborough he didn't become a musician there! Is that something that he would have been taught in Saltley?

Thank you very much dusty2. That's fascinating new information. After his mother's death in 1900 John William joined the Army for 12 years and served in NI, Egypt, Sudan and India. I knew the family was troubled but this adds a new slant.  My grandfather who was one of the younger brothers never talked much about his parents and I am beginning to get a flavour of why!!

Thanks for all the replies. My mistake - I meant the marriage of William Addleton to Lucy Selby in 1865 and I am then looking for the deaths of Lucy Addleton's children pre/post the marriage. I have found the family in all the censuses up to 1911 (in 1891 the name is mis-transcribed as Addleston). diddymiller- I am very happy to wait a while as you will be back before I will be able to get to Loughborough. Hope you are having a great holiday.

Leicestershire Lookup Requests / Addletons in Loughborough
« on: Saturday 27 October 12 20:06 BST (UK)  »
I am researching Lucy Addleton who was born in Loughborough in 1839 and married William Winfield in 1865. In the 1911 census Lucy claimed that she had had 16 children of whom only 3 were still living. Along the way she had also managed to adopt a little boy! Can anyone provide the cemetery listings for children of Lucy Addleton in Loughborough please? I think her first child Sarah was born in 1863 before she married and I am aware of Emma (Selby) who died 4 June 1865 aged 14days while she was still a singlewoman.
I have found the ones that lived long enough to appear in a census but there must be many more who died young. I am descended from her daughter Louisa who died young in 1900. If any of her other descendants are researching please get in touch.

I too have just discovered that one of my ancestors was sent to Saltley. His surname was Winfield and he was sent there from Loughborough in June/July 1895. His father had to pay 1s a week for his maintenance but as he failed to pay he was sent to prison for 28days the following year. Are these records online yet or can anyone supply me any further information about him please?

Gortonboy. Thanks I eventually found my way to it though it didnt appear in the initial search. Now I am really confused!!How does an under weight lad who is rejected on medical grounds by the Militia end up shortly afterwards as a Private in the 1st Leicesters?
