Hi everyone, it has been a year since the last update to his thread and I have not made any further progress. My ancestor Henry William Lucas definitely ended up in an Industrial school in Barnet where he learned the skills to become a butcher. As to what happened to his three sisters following the death of his father is still uncertain. As they were living in one of the poorest parts of London, I wonder if they could have been sent to Australia or NZ as pauper children. As more records become accessible it might be possible to find out one day.
