My money's still on William Isaac Edge born Chorlton RD (which would be right for Gorton) in 1860. Mmn Cook per GRO. More research required...

Another will!
William Bean of Jevington, farmer.
Proved at Lewes, 1 Aug 1751

Eldest son John Bean
Grandchildren Ann, Mary, Arabella, and Barbara Bean (children of said son John Bean)

He has daughter Mary Allen
And daughter Barbara Playsted
Barbara Playsted has children Henry, William, and Elizabeth

Another son Thomas Bean (executor)

Other stuff relating to this will on The Keep.
It's dated 26 Dec 1750, so the Ann Bean who was buried in Rottingdean in 1747/8 must be someone else.
And the William Playsted mentioned may be the executor of John Bean's will.

Convert the link to + the rest!

Also an exam re a Joseph Gwilliam (their spelling) in the same book, 26 June 1866 (image 54)
Says he is 54 (is that right?), of 5 Elliotts Place
Is ill

Info from sister in law Ellen Gwilliam, 20, of 33 Elliotts Place
Which is one of the addresses listed for Robert in his exam!

William Way said that Robert's father Joseph died 5 or 6 years ago, was a dustman
Esther died 2 years ago.

There is also an Ann Bean baptized at Friston, 8 July 1735, to John and Ann.

And apparently an earlier Mary Bean to parents with the same names, 24 Feb 1727. Which complicates things. Info from FamilySearch (no images)

Ann Bean buried at Rottingdean, 22 Jan 1747/8. No other info :(

Religious creed registers were introduced in 1869. They recorded the religion of the inmates when they were admitted to the workhouse. Date of discharge is also given
More often than not they were arranged by first letter of surname (but not always!), thus they can be easier to search than the A+D registers. Other information might be recorded, so in some places the creed registers can be as, or more, useful than the A+D records. Especially if they are all that survive!
That register is for the workhouse in Renfrew Road.

Perhaps that address might be where Sophia was working as a servant? It's a shame though if there is no entry for 1891.
