In 1881 Alexander Palleson was the "head" of the Royal Albert Orphanage on Henwick Road.

Thankyou. ....I presume he must have been given a place there because his father had died.  It was the word asylum that had me puzzled as I knew he went on to marry and lived till he was about 80.

If you look at the 1881 image it says address was Asylum Lane - orphan asylum -  but I wonder if that was an enumerator error and should have been orphanage

On the 1886 map it is called Royal Albert Orphan Asylum.

Asylum=  A benevolent institution affording shelter and support to some class of the afflicted, the unfortunate, or destitute.
