Henry ARNOTT Westminster Workhouse

Postby coopernicola » Mon Sep 25, 2017 12:11 pm

My husbands 2x gt grandfather, Henry ARNOTT, was born in Marylebone, London. His mother & siblings seem to have spent a lot if time in and out of the workhouse in the 1860's. Somehow he found his way to Hull as a fisherman. I'm wondering if this could have been a result of his time in the workhouse. Could this image provide a clue, I think the Remarks refer to the family group.
I can read: "has no home to remain boy to be sent to Barking and a S??? ... for girl"
Then it becomes rather difficult.

Nicola, while you await help with the writing, have you seen the St Marylebone Register of Apprentices?

It says boy to be sent to Barking, but was he?
Another register for the same period has Henry and Caroline discharged "To Southall", 27 October 1866.
Marylebone religious creed register, 1869-70, has Henry Arnott, 15, admitted to the workhouse 11 August 1869, from Southall, and discharged 16 August, (to) Hull.

Lots of boys apprenticed by Marylebone to smack owners in Barking. Obviously at some point fishing in Barking started to go into decline. Maybe there were fewer opportunities available there even by 1869? (I don't know the answer to that!)

Ian, Thank you I don't know how you work your magic but this is amazing! I've found all the admission information for the family into the workhouse on Ancestry. I've not found the Creed register or Apprenticeship documents. It certainly explains how he came to Hull.
Nicola.
