I've posted in occupation s general question about merchant navy apprentices

There is a William Grundy enrolling Oct 1844 for 4 years age 15
And one or two different George Grundys in 1846 and 1847.

I thougt the mariner connection was  a a good indication that these were children of our 'ancient mariner'William Grundy
But my mother thinks the Walton on the hill workhouse may have specialised in turning out sailors

We know the Kirkdale workhouse trained children in tailoring at that time

That fits perfectly

She could have died in childbirth ....George may well have been born in workhouse

I thought it fitted until you found the death of a young Sarah who would fit with the baptism  :-\

You.re right Heywood

if Sarah daughter of William and Harriet died in workhouse
Can't be the same Sarah Grundy who married Edward Healey

Having a sister called Ann and a father called William as the only definite clues we have to identity

Hi workhouse Sarah death doesn't fit exactly because if she was 8 in 1836 she would have been born 1828 after the July 1827 baptism

I've been trolling thru baptisms and christenings for a Sarah Grundy b around 1823 with mother Sarah pages and pages but by search parameters won't show me London ones .....Don't know what I'm doing wrong
 ..I tried leaving William off too in case he is an invented father

Harriet is a less common names and does occur in later generations  so i.m hoping she is the correct mother
Could she be Harriet Sarah Grundy. ?  Nee ?  So on ,1841 census as Sarah 36 with the Healey family ??

There is a possibility for Harriet   Grundy  aged 46  1851
In little Heaton Lancashi

She is listed as sister to Alice Grundy    they are all cotton loom weavers

Or Sarah Grundy aged 48 who is listed as neice

Very difficult to read as census has been damaged look s like fire

Heywood
I double checked workhouse

Harriet who died in workhouse seems to have been age 21   the lady below is aged 36
Little Sarah on same page looks more like Greening than Grundy

I have been searching 1841 - it is odd that there is no sign of Sarah and Ann.  :-\
