Hi
Legit means that her parents were married, she wasn't born illegitimate. It's the sort of thing workhouses liked to know.
Florence's case is interesting, she was in the workhouse some months before going to the "industrial school". I haven't found her in the records of St Pancras children at Lloyd House. Possibly no one else much either after mid 1913. So I don't know what is going on there at the moment.

If you have FamilySearch, there is an index of Pancras patients at Park Hospital. It says that Gladys was admitted 12 Feb 1913, then discharged 6 June. As we know, that was to the workhouse, and she was discharged to her mother next day.
