Sarah Wilkinson of Heydon, Essex
« on: Saturday 17 November 12 21:52 GMT (UK) »
Sarah Wilkinson listed herself as a widow in 1851. She may have been born in Risley, Hertfordshire or near Heydon, Essex and she baptized dtr Ann at Reed, Hertfordshire (no father given). She is living in Heydon, Royston, Essex? in 1841 with Ann, daughter aged seven. Sarah was born between 1803 to 1805. The other census I have is for 1851 St. Mary parish, Islington and she is a "patient" still with daughter Ann, sixteen years old whose own birthplace was given as Reed, Essex. I do not understand the reference to "patients" as the image and transcript don't explain if this is a hospital. The reference is H0107, piece 1499, folio 42, page 38. All women there, and not a huge number. Appreciate any clues someone may find.
Second question relates to her dtr Ann Wilkinson born 1834 who gave her father's name as Joseph Wilkinson, labourer, in 1861 when she married Reuben Brown. I wonder if Sarah was actually unmarried. I found a Joseph who married a Sarah in Royston, 1825. Wondering if another Joseph Wilkinson can be found in Hertfordshire or Heydon.
lastly, did Sarah Wilkinson appear on the census at Ongar, Essex in 1871. This would be a lookup request. Thank you for any assistance with it. Ann went on to live in Walthamstow Essex after marriage to Reuben Brown so I do have her history forward. J

Sorry, correction, I do see men now in the 'patients' referred to in previous post. Wide range of ages. A workhouse perhaps?

Hi heathgirl :)

According to FindMyPast, it's the Fever Hospital in Liverpool Road.

Thank you! I wonder what type of fever it was. Perhaps it was luck they survived. Shall have to look up the hospital now. J

I should say if they both survived - Ann did, but not Sarah, perhaps. If Sarah died, I expect the index would be in Islington.

This link shows you some of the hospital's history: http://www.rootschat.com/links/0s8m/

Select 'Royal Free Hospital Liverpool Road Branch' from the list.

Near the bottom of the page, you'll see a section titled 'Royal Free Hospital Archives Centre'.  Click on the information (i) button to get their contact details.

Good luck :)

Thank you again! you must have been reading my mind. I was having a bit of trouble locating the right information and checked back, and your second posting was there. In a different site I found an email address for the Archives at Royal Free hopefully it will work. It would be worth a look, but we are in a different country. J

Hi again,

Glad to be of help ;D
I see you're in Canada, which is why I didn't suggest you visit them in person!  The email address will work regardless of where you are, so fingers crossed that the archives will have some useful information.  There will probably be a small admin charge if they email or post any records.

Good luck :)
