An observation would be that if the workhouse record was related to you on this site, it won't have been deleted, so go look for it!

If you know all about Robert, you can tell everyone where he should be in 1841.
Maybe then YOU can look too.

There is absolutely no need for this kind of sarcasm, PaulineJ - if you want to help then do so, if you don't there is no need for comments like this!

If you have Ancestry this may be the fate of Richard,admitted as a lunacy patient and died in August 1863

Thanks a lot to all of you for your ongoing help with this. No, I don’t have ancestry,I have FindMyPast, but what a shame if it’s him,as those places were very grim back then.

Nooshie -- London Metropolitan Archives seem to hold material about Greenwich Workhouse. It may be worth emailing them to see if they have admission papers for 1856.

Just go to the bottom of that page and contact details are given

Thank you so much Pennines, I will have a look into George Mills, now and a possible ‘Day’ connection somewhere.
Update, the 1859 marriage doesn’t appear right, on the censuses Catherine Mills has wrong birthplace, birth year and a child that doesn’t fit, so not her.

Hi all,
I have had new information that Catherine Hunter had four children in the GREENWICH workhouse:
Robert Hunter aged 12 in 1856, his brother Richard Hunter aged 10, Thomas Day aged 10 and Henry Day aged 7 ,all 1856 entries. Notes in margin say: ‘children of Catherine MILLS ,[not HUNTER ]of this house’.
Does this mean she was in there too? Clearly she has lived or married men called DAY and MILLS.
Also, is there any way of finding out where the DAY children were born .
Thanks a lot.
