Stamford workhouse
« on: Friday 01 May 20 03:28 BST (UK) »
I have a record of Henry Lord entering the workhouse on March 24 1841 with his wife and four children but have not been able to find a record of them leaving
Can anyone help please

I've not been able to find them on either the 1841 or 1851 census - they are a mystery.

I also saw that KG, it has Guardians minute books as well for the period 1835 -1888 and 1904-30.  That is why I asked where the workhouse info came from as it is not apparent that there are other records.  Peter Higginbothams workhouse pages are generally accurate.

Perhaps Lincstothepast have something  :-\

Thank you Rosie99 and KGarrard.
The original information I have is a photocopied page from a physical book in the LDS library in Salt Lake City headed "Extracts from the Stamford Union workhouse Minutes PL15/102/2 1838-1841"
I foolishly didn't record the reference numbers and I can't seem to find it in their digital library so I'm guessing it still hasn't been digitized.

Thank you for your suggestion to contact the Lincolnshire FHS. I will do that when life returns to normal!
Thank you both
