Removal Orders - Poor Law Records - ALLOWAY
« on: Saturday 02 July 16 03:17 BST (UK) »
The following record was found on FindMyPast:
Wiltshire Removal Orders
From place:Bradford
From county:Wiltshire
From country:England
To place:Hilperton
To county:Wiltshire
To country:England
WSRO ref:77/39
Record source:Wiltshire Removal Orders
Data provider:Wiltshire Family History Society

Ann is my 4th ggmother.  Her son my 3rd ggfather William ALLOWAY was also removed from Bradford to Antony, Cornwall when he was 11 (one record says 7) years old at the same time.  I have his information from Antony Poor Law records and can track him until his death in Devon in 1886.

My question has to do with Ann.  She simply disappears after this removal order.  Are there any Poor Law Records or similar covering Hilperton that might help me find out where she went or what happened to her?  I have no age so no idea when she was born. 

I have not been able to locate a baptism or birth record for William in 1816, but he is always consistent with giving his birthplace as Antony or Torpoint within Antony, Cornwall.  I have looked for Ann in Cornwall to see if any Removal Orders mention her - without success.  She doesn't appear in any census record - at least anyone I can identify as my Ann.  And I cannot identify any of the Ann ALLOWAYs who died in or around Hilperton as mine.

The only real evidence I have of her is the Removal Order.
