    Yes. A weekly sum of four shillings a week, on the understanding that they were kept 'clean, well-clothed and fed and learnt good manners'.

    My family were split up in the WH as children - one has fairly detailed records to support what happened to him, the other has been like searching for a needle in a haystack.

    I will have to try the Minute books or what other WH records I can find, must admit never tried those for these children, although had a good deal of success with my GG. Grandmother in Licolnshire using WH records that were still available, took some finding though with some help from members of this Great Group of people on Top Dog. arryboy

    No, it is entitled 'Adoption pre 1915', reflecting the 100 year rule.
