The Common Room / Names on document
« on: Friday 24 July 20 13:34 BST (UK)  »
Not sure if I'm posting in the correct bit but I'm trying to work out why two names are listed on a workhouse paper.

Under names and ages of Pauper and Family Chargeable it lists two names Hillda Bailey (actually Baitey)  18 years then a different name underneath, but I am not aware of any other family members and no one else in mentioned on the document other than Hilda.

I wondered if anyone had any ideas who it could be.

Many Thanks

Thank you for the replies it is a massive help. "I don't remember acting the part of Topsey in Uncle Tom's Cabin" seems a very strange question to ask and log down on a workhouse record, although my grandmother was from Jamaica so she could of played the part.
