Another question please.  I have found the location of Queen's Row, London, on an 18th century map very near (south of) the Queen's Palace.  It looks like Queen's Row was located at or near where the Royal Mews are now.  There is a modern-day Queen's Row near Camberwell Road.  I would appreciate some guidance please to find out more about the historic Queen's Row, particularly in the early 19th century.  J

Am I better off starting off a new thread for this question?

I imagine a separate thread would be better. Perhaps with the map to get precise information? 
And by "the Queen's Palace" do you mean what is now called Buckingham Palace, or a different building?

Thank you.  Yes, I'll post on a new thread.  It is Buckingham Palace but I was going by the label on the old map.   J

Oh wow, no I didnít know that....thank you. I will definitely claim my badge!!

Oh fantastic. Well done the Rootschatters.

Linda, please do let us know how you get on with the research, and with claiming your badge.

I spent a few very interesting hours at Barts archives and museum last week.  Managed to find the information for Jaznjjj which unfortunately was quite basic i.e. ward name, consultant, date of admission, and date of discharge.  They allow photographs of entries to be taken but charge £10 or alternatively they allow you to make your own notes using pencil only.

I also found a number of entries that could well have been for my ancestors, although no actual proof that they were in hospital at that particular time.

If anyone is in the area the museum is definitely worth a visit, quite small but loads of interesting facts and artefacts to view. 

A huge thanks to Jaznjjj for highlighting the museum's existence on here as I wouldn't have known about it - even though I grew up in that area of London!

Unfortunately none of the staff I spoke to knew anything about claiming a 'I was born in Bart's' badge.  It may be, if it was some years ago it was just a one off.  One lady said she would investigate and let me know via email.

Thanks for the  update Linda.... disappointing it seems the badge be may apocryphal. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. :)

Linda shared her findings with me via personal message so this is a public thank you.  Even little fragments of information help.  In 1824 Henry Snr was admitted to St. Bart's a month before his son's trial - Henry Snr was discharged a month after the trial and he petitioned for clemency for his son a few weeks later in 1825. Another Rootschat correspondent found a record of Henry Snr's insolvency earlier in 1824 so it sounds like all was not rosy financially.  I now have some leads to follow up thanks to all the help on this and another Rootschat thread!    J :)

I'm surprised the museum had no idea about the badges.(Lapel pins)
 Google the Bart's Guild shop  they have an E mail address.It's run by volunteers they will give you the details.

Did you get your Born in St Barts pin? I popped into the Guild shop yesterday and they have forms to fill in, asking your name and date of birth. The cost is two pounds fifty and money goes into a fund for provision of facilities for cancer patients at Bart's.
