Childrens homes in Hackney c1860's
« on: Tuesday 07 March 06 13:50 GMT (UK) »
Hi all

I'm trying to trace two boys
Thomas Gall b 1858,Hackney
Edward Gall b 1859,Hackney
Their parents were James and Fanny Gall. James was a policeman and married Fanny in 1857. I have them on the 1861 census living in Hackney. Fanny died in 1863. I've got James on the 1871 living in a police section house in Findsbury, but theres no sign of the two boys, nor can I find them living with any relations.
James remarried in 1872 and on the 1881 he is shown as having only one daughter .
I was wondering if anybody knew of any children's homes in Hackney around the 1860's or maybe there was some kind of police children's home?
Any help greatly appreciated
Mick

Mick,

Hackney  comes under the Borough of Tower Hamlets.  Try these links to see if they can help you:

The Hackney one has a phone number and address.

Hope they help  ;)
