HUNDLEBY/SPILSBY workhouse, Lincolnshire
« on: Thursday 13 February 20 21:03 GMT (UK) »
I am wondering if I would be able to obtain 1841 records for all residents at the Hundlesby/spilsby workhouse?
I have found a relative Thomas Crowson aged 8 but trying to trace his mother Martha Crowson.
I have read the Spilsby minutes books and found her name crop up with bastardy cases but cannot find her whereabouts in  1841.
Any help appreciated.

Just wondering about Martha Crowstone aged 30 in Saltfleetby. Female servant

Not that far away from where she is on 1851

HI and thanks for looking. I know that Martha was born in 1807. Im new to the searching but guess ages got mixed up or lied about.

Ages on the 1841 census were rounded down, so age 30-35 fits nicely!

Thats great. Thank you for taking the time to look.
It also helps my hunch that John Campion who was named as the father of her first child may be the father of her son who was in the workhouse. There is a John Campion in Theddlethorpe which is nearby.
