Is this her in 1901?

1064/34/17

Annie Exton, servant  25 yrs Laundress  b Boston, Lincolnshire

She is on a ‘houseboat ‘with a Conroy family, in Southampton.
It also mentions a North Sea fishing boat.  ::)


Much of this depends on the correct year of birth  :-\

According to the Calendar of Prisoners record available on Anc*y Annie was sentenced, 8 Feb 1889 to 10 days imprisonment followed by five years in a reformatory for stealing 8/- from a nine year old girl whilst the newspaper article attached below says 8d, which seems more likely  – can’t imagine a nine year old running loose with 8/- in her pocket in 1889!  Also attached is a previous article from 1888 giving some background to the 5 year sentence.

Looking for a girls’ reformatory in Lincoln brings up the Penitent Females’ Home.  http://www.childrenshomes.org.uk/LincolnPenitent/

In 1891 there were four staff and fourteen teenage inmates at the home, all listed as domestic servants but Annie is not one of them, so it does seem she was either let out early or ‘paroled’ for the remainder of her sentence.  Link to Anc*y record – 1891 Lincolnshire St Martin ED 31 pages 78 – 79. http://www.rootschat.com/links/01qxi/

Thank you for taking time, I did have the newspaper reports, x

she never did stop stealing right up to Her old age,

not very good at it though, she was forever getting caught  ;D ;D

Here is a note of caution.

There is an Annie Eaton b Lincoln 1876 - no mother’s name.
1881 3219 /130/4

Boston Workhouse
Ellen Eaton 28 yrs b Kirton, Lincs
Annie Eaton 5 yrs b Lincoln , Lincs

I can’t see Ellen in later censuses.

There is, however, a marriage
1894 Boston
Charles W Hansom and Annie Eaton

In 1901, Annie Hansom is born in Lincoln but they are living in Boston.
