Masonic School on Jersey?
« on: Sunday 17 November 19 15:32 GMT (UK) »
Just wondering if there was a boarding, probably, school with masonic connections somewhere on Jersey, as it seems that a sibling of an ancestor of mine, after the death of both his parents left him orphaned at a very young age, in the very early 1920s somehow went from Lancashire to a school on Jersey, most likely as a recipient of Masonic largesse?

I think the father of a friend went there. I am seeing the friend for lunch tomorrow. I will update this if nobody beats me to it.

Thanks, it's not my direct line, but that boy and my own grandmother were half siblings, she was the eldest daughter of the first wife, he was the son of the second wife, and both died in, I think, the Influenza  scourge of 1919. The eldest son of the first family appears to have wanted nothing to do with the poor child, and we think unloaded him via father's masonic links.
I'd like to know where he went. I believe a couple of maiden aunts were mainly responsible for him in most practical matters.

Hi

If you can give his name, it might be possible to tackle this from another angle.

I am confused, who died in 1919.  ;D

Both of his parents, that is, my great grandfather and his second wife, Reginald's mum. The boy was about 4 years old. Sorry, I'd not realised it was unclear. The family of the first wife knew very little of him until I started hunting, some years ago.
