Title: Newaboys Home Everton Road Liverpool
Post by: Clingan on Tuesday 19 June 07 10:10 BST (UK)
Can anyone help please. Looking for information in regards to Newaboys Home located on Everton Road beginning 1900's.
One of the heads of the place was a Thomas Clingan who went there as boss man following his retirement as an Inspector in the Liverpool Police.
Any help/info appreciated.

Found this mention on Rootsweb

New's Boys Home, Everton Road, Mrs Elizabeth Johanson, Matron. (1895)
Also this mention on passenger lists of children going to Canada;

1897 May 5 Numidian News Boys' Home, Liverpool to Rev. Leslie, Winnipeg  

I know it doesn't answer your question but this is all I could find. Have you tried the records office in Liverpool? They may have more information. Good Luck!

There were also the Father NUgent Homes in Liverpool,   This man was responsible for sending orphaned and other children to Canada, as well as Barnados and other religious socieites.

Father Nugent also collected children from Ireland to send to Canada as well.  It is documented online this is one such site which gives lists of childrens names and where they came from.

Another good site to research orphans is

http://www.rootsweb.com/~ote/orphans/?cj=1&o_xid=0002375064&o_lid=0002375064

this lists many many such places in USA and Canada which maybe of use to people searching for orphans that were sent there.

Most informative.

Hi Ian,

The RO dont hold any records of this home. Apparently they are kept in Sydney Jones museum. I have to find out about this museum, I will let you know.

However, I did find Thomas Clingan Obit., makes very interesting reading. Over 100 hundred policemen among the mourners!

I have found he was buried in Toxteth Park Cemetery. Do you have a date for his death? I looked through 1903, but I couldn't find him. I could go and take a photo of his head stone for you, if you want.

Please pm me your email addy and I will send obit  to you.

Red,
Thanks very much for the offer but I now have two copies of the same obit. One arrived from Oz and the other from USA. Both coming from Irish Clingan
researchers, needless to say they are now in contact with one another.
Thanks once again and also thanks for everyone else that's passed on info.
Looks as if the home may, repeat may have been one of those that sent the kids in their charge to Canada/Oz.

Can I just put on record the appreciation of the work you have done on behalf of the Irish Clingan researchers both in Australia and Canada, especially in Canada, as they are the direct descendents of Thomas, they are mighty pleased.
Thanks
Ian

One of the earlier posts said that records for the News Boys Home were held by Sydney Jones Museum. I presume this is the Sydney Jones Library in The University of Liverpool?

Hi Joffrey2,

My great grandmother was Martha Clingan from West Island, Belle Isle, Lisbellaw, Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.  I think she is related to Thomas Clingan, police inspector in Liverpool, and I have seen a photo of him and his family now in the posession of my sister.

Just saw this thread. I am currently pulling together a scrapbook on the history of the Everton Red Triangle Boxing Club (100 years old this year) which was on Everton Road.
It took over the Newsboys home in 1919 when the Newsboy Home became known as the Everton Red Cross Triangle Lads’ Club and became a branch of the YMCA after it acquired the property from the Newsboys’ Home for Destitute Boys on Everton Road, (120-126) not far from the Heyworth Street junction with Breck Road in November 1919.

I would be most interested in receiving any photographs of the Newsboys home (redkop) if you are willing as these would be a useful addition to the scrapbook.

Thanks in advance
