Orphan Asylum

Postby seasalora » Fri Apr 19, 2013 2:53 am

Regarding Hull Leamans & General Orphan Asylum - I am hopeful of obtaining a copy of the actual admittance form of one Edith Agnes Fisher. She is listed in 1891 as an inmate/scholar age 11 years and I would guess she was probably placed there in the early months of 1887 after the death of her mother. Can anyone set me in the right direction, I live in Australia and have tried searching the internet but with no success.

Hi,

It's Hull Seamens and General Orphanage ( not Leamans ). The records are held at Hull History Centre . This page at Access to Archives gives their contact details :

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/a2a/ ... ho&cid=0#0

It might be worth emailing them to see how helpful they are prepared to be , given your location.

Incidentally, this board is for queries about the website. Research queries should be posted on Help with Research , where more people will see them with any luck !
