Lancashire / Workhouse records/Orphans
« on: Sunday 12 October 14 14:17 BST (UK)  »
Hi,
In the 1841 census I have a James Catterall (1806) in Preston Workhouse, whilst his wife and children are in Ribchester workhouse.  Was it usual to separate married couples? 
Does anyone know if there are any records relating to these workhouses which might give me more background, and, if so, where I can find them?

I also have a family of children orphaned in 1861.  Any ideas whether there are any records that might help me discover who took them in?
Many thanks.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know where I can find archives of these papers?  I have tried the British Newspaper Archive, but they seem to be missing several years of these papers.

Hi,
Anyone any idea where I can access newspapers from Preston 1900-1940? What papers would Preston folks have used during this time, for family notices etc?
Also trying to trace family burials in and around Preston and Bootle. 

Thank you for your help.

Thank you very much for your help.  D'you think he would have served at home because he was 30 at the beginning of the war? Or might he have already had a useful skill for home service?

I think I've found his enlistment record on ancestry, but need to confirm that it's the right Richard Seed - I think half of Lancashire has that name! Many thanks for your help.
