Re: Parents of Arthur Garrett

Hello Pam, I am attaching some further information in case you or any good soul might help. Arthur Garrett was admitted to the Ashford School directly from Paddington Workhouse on 18 November 1875. At the age of six years (PABG 116/1) he was stated to be chargeable to Paddington. His religion was Church of England and there were other children in the family who were not named (these were his kin and will try and find out who they were). In the remarks column of the register it says “Mother in prison” (I am also trying to locate what prison and when was she admitted and discharged) The next entry for Arthur in the register shows his discharge from the West London School to the training ship Exmouth, along with other boys on, 4 January 1881. Here the remarks column has “Mother in prison, supposed to have gone” which can be read as meaning that she had been in prison earlier, but no longer was (but "gone" where?) There are some Creed Registers for the workhouse, which might also have helped, but there is a gap between August 1875 and 1878. Arthur will have been sent to the Exmouth from one of the schools used by the Paddington unions. The Board of Guardians’ Register of children chargeable to Paddington (PABG 116/1) shows that Arthur was at the West London School District at Ashford in Middlesex for four years (5 Jan 1881 to 4 Dec 1884) before going to Exmouth.

In the Metroplitan Asylum Board (2492) XO98/478 in the Admission and Disharge Register for Exmouth (1876-1896) "Relevant Entries" for A. Garrett show "No on S.B. 1381" "No on W.H. 127" having as his "Union" Paddington with the date of admission and discharge as 5.1.81 and 4.12.1884" respectively (But The SB and WH abbreviations I cannot undertand what they stand for).

Sorry to have bothered you again.

Harry Garrett
