Oh Elsabels that’s fantastic! Would never have found that as on ancestry it is listed as George Pain. The institution of which George is an inmate is the Marylebone Houseboys Brigade. I have a discharge paper record from Brighton Road school from 1899 showing George was discharged to Mr Budd at Marylebone House Boys Brigade so it ties up perfectly! At least he had a couple of years there. Now to find out whether he moved on to work in Portsmouth for the Admiral....
I’ll start looking for George Pain listings and see if that brings up anything.

Hi
Well you can search the British Newspaper Archive site here
https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co. ... h/advanced

If you just register with them, you get three page views for free.
You may find all sorts of things! The same newspapers are also available on findmypast.

There are a few more unindexed workhouse records on ancestry, don't know if you have them.
https://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=1557

You would have to browse under borough Southwark / union Bermondsey
i.e. under "record type" Register of Children
Medical Officer´s Statements as to Children Admitted to Brighton Road Schools, 1894-1899
which is here
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interactive/ ... 3498-00021

Some ins and outs of the Paice children in Register of Children in the South Metropolitan District Schools
Can't remember where that is at the moment!

and
Workhouse entries for Richard Paice from circa 1896 in the "Register of Relations"

Ian, thanks again!

My relations are listed in just about every possible one of those unindexed records I looked at. They really had a hard time. Sad to see George’s dad listed as being destitute and having no adult relatives. I’ll keep looking through those.

Hi again looking through my records I see have a document showing a George F Paice in the Royal Flying Corps with regimental Number 760. Is there a free way to see if that is likely to be my George? Thanks.

Oh my as a beginner this is making my mind boggle! So, I have been working on the basis that my great grandfather’s marriage certificate (RC wedding in Glasgow) shows father James Paice, mother Annie Paice ms Webb. Family confirm he had a an English accent and family lore is he was in ‘an orphanage with his brother’. I matched that with Richard James Paice, married to Sarah Anne Webb in Bermondsey in 1886 RJ’s address being 46 Princes Road. I then see Thomas Paice in and out of poor schools with either Sarah Paice or Richard Paice noted as the parent. Ditto his brother George and sister Ada Annie.

I can’t find any other marriages between a Paice and a Webb about that time - what do you think I am doing wrong?
