Hi Potty and all the others who have kindly replied to my postings.
Potty, would you please be kind enough to explain to me how I transfer other threads to this thread, and also how to copy and paste only relevant information on other threads to this thread. I am battling!
I think it is old age catching up on me!
To everybody else you kindly replied to my postings, I am trying to get all the necessary information asked for and will reply as soon as possible.

Lorriane, probably the easiest way would be to post on your other threads (anything will do even one letter. This will bring that thread back up on the board; to copy, highlight the info using your mouse (hold down the left button on your mouse as you move it over the text), press the Ctrl and C keys together; open this thread, click in the reply box and press the Ctrl and V keys together to paste into the box.

I have copied this over from the thread Chris refers to as it gives another line of enquiry:

I have in my possession, obtained from the LMA a copy of the Admission
Register 1878 of The StrandUnion Children's Establishment, which reads
as follows:
No: 1608
Name: Bayley Henry (in the 1881 Census he is Henry Bailey)
Age: 8
Parish to which Char eable: St.Giles
Date of Admission: 24 May 1878
Whether at Workhouse School before, and how long: No
Whether in any other Schoolbefore, and how long: Infant
Date of Discharge: Blank
Observations: Transferred to New Book

I have had a search done at LMA by their researchers and thisNew Book
could not be found. A friend in London also searched but it seems that this particular book ismissing.
I suppose the only course one could follow would be to read through the Minutes of meetingsof the Board of The Children'sEstablishment, Edmonton, to see whether Henry Bailey was discharged, and when.
I know he" walked to London" soon after he was confirmed.
If I could perhaps find a Henry Bailey who was born, or perhaps lived at some stage in Hornsey, it might help, as the address on the 1884/5 photo I have of a brass band, of which Henry Bailey is a member, is 122, Turnpike Lane, Hornsey, London.


Lorraine Report 20 Jul 2013 09:33

Hello EverybodyI am STILL trying to find my gandfather's father, who he said was a Charles Bailey. Would anybody be kind enough to
try and find a Charles Bailey, born (and christened) any time between 1840 and 1855 in the Bedford, Bedfordshire area (preferably in Riseley). My grandfather wrote that he had been orphaned at an
early age, so perhaps you would be kind enough to look for a death of a Charles Bailey (born in Bedford) any time from 1871 until 1902.
(There was a Charles Bailey from Bedford in the1871 Census, but I could not trace him further). Grandfather Henry Bailey wrote that he had been born in Edmonton, so I suppose his father might have died anywhere, but more probably in the Bedford area or Middlesex.
Thank you from South Africa.

Lorraine, you can search for these births and deaths on freebmd ( There are quite a few listed. The only Charles Bailey with a POB of Risely that I can find in the 1871 is aged 20 and living in Kent.
