I am seeking information from the admission registers of this hospital.  I contacted their archives and was invited to come in and have a look - but as I live in Australia, that's a bit tricky.  They advised me the record would probably be limited to admission date, departure date and ward number and gave me a link to independent researchers - which is something I will follow up if other avenues fail. I am hoping there is someone in proximity who is willing and able to have a look on my behalf please.  The patient's name was Henry MOIR (Snr).  In February, 1825 he refer to his being hospitalised during the trial of his son (Henry MOIR) in mid-December, 1824. I have no idea of the duration of his stay.  I have attached the petition which might be of interest.    J.

Hi Jaznjjj

What an interesting story! My ancestors lived around this area and I grew up not very far away too.  I was born in St Bartholomews Hospital!

I would be happy to visit and look at this on your behalf.

I am due to visit the area within the next two weeks - not sure of the exact date but will let you know when.

Hi Linda, thank you so much!  No hurry. I'm also interested to learn about the St. Bart's archives generally and this will probably be of interest to other Rootschatters. 

The finding of Henry MOIR's petition has been a breakthrough in this family's research.  It confirmed his name which led to finding the marriage and later his address (Bream's Building).  There is much to be followed up but Henry's stay in St. Bartholomew's will help with a timeline.  It is more than just a couple of dates to me as I am trying to get a grip on the circumstances which might have led to a young man going to the dark side. 

Hi Lizzie, I have answered your PM - an interesting little project for me.   Let me know if the message doesn't land please. 

Kind regards,
J

You're very welcome Jaznjjj.  I am quite excited about visiting the museum as I never actually knew of its existence until I saw your post.

I'll post an update following my visit.
