Hi,

It looks like Joseph b.1881 was put in the workhouse by his aunt, then he went to Canada,


Portsmouth Workhouse Registers

Joseph HIGGINBOTTOM
b 1882 admitted 2 Sep 1890, discharged 7 June 1892 from Portsea
His aunt was the informant.
Religious creed:  Dittoed from CofE above but then Cof Rome written over it.

I can't find him after this.


Regards,
Daisy

Hi - that was very helpful.  Thanks! Started looking through all the workhouse and Canada stuff and just found his arrival:  WJoseph in the 1894 Library and Archives Canada index to workhouse reports! But then sad face. 13, working for no wage, going to Church but not school, on second farm, happy now. Honestly it was just slave labor for so many of these children.  I don't know what Canada was like, but some of the Australia stories have been horrific.

Happy St Patrick's Day!! Thank everyone so much. I am attaching the narrative story I have written up for the relatives which now illustrates a past they did not know anything other than stories and rumors about. I am sending to them now too. Obviously with every huge win like you finding the right Joseph Higginbottom and Anne Rooney, it just opens more windows. . . . but I think a lot of people will be happy!  https://www.ancestry.com/family-tree/person/tree/80705431/person/32430940932/gallery IS the Hyperlink to the Ancestry page with the narrative story. For some reason cant attach.
