London, England, Poor Law and Board of Guardian Records, 1430-1930
Parish or Poor Law Union: Hackney
Borough: Hackney
Register Name: Schools and Children, 1879-1903
Record Type: Register of Children
Year Range: 1879-1903

Afraid this is the best I can come up with.

Once you've found this record - go to page 42 of the 161

Hope this helps

where are you looking and will try to find it..are you searching on genes or ancestry?

No! Sorry, I think I'm wrong there. Having found the entry for Jane Knott again, I now see it's for Rottingdean Certified Infirmary.

I've tried copying and pasting the entry, but no joy there.

I think Christina's info is more relevant - there is no sign of a brother on the 1901 I posted, and it is not an orphanage it is a reformatory (like a juvenile jail).

sorry yes this is definatly Thomas's sister, his siblings are George 18644, william 1880, Jane (also recorded as Jame) 1882, Robert 1884 and arther 1887

i had no idea Jane was placed as well thank you i will follow that lead...thinking about it Mrs Ogan sounds more familiar than Brown...her aunt? thats another lead worth following..who is Mrs Ogan..thank you.
My mother says that the 'orphange' he was placed at burnt down but some records remain clearly, and i wonder if this is a story my grandfather told..
I wonder why no record of his mother can be found but maybe? the Ogan line is the key although she would probably be under her married name.

Do you feel the first "orphange' and 2nd are different places?

The 1901 census also has a Thomas Knott - aged 13- at The Hackney Union Training School in Brentwood, Essex.

Trawling through the Poor Law Records on Ancestry, I've found a Thomas Knott and Robert Knott at this place - but no other information is given, not even an exact year. As the records are not indexed, it would take days to trawl through them all.

There's also a Jane Knott admitted to a Hackney Union School/Workhouse:

Jane Knott b. 1881 - orphan - brought in by her aunt (Mrs. Ogan) of 35, North Street, Hackney. Admitted 6/7/1896 Discharged 21/8/1896

Could this be Thomas' sister?

Hi Chris.
On the right track Thomas's father George married a Fether, nee trayhorn

Hi Flip
Yes that was the place i was referring to as an orphange, he was placed there with his brother by a lady (Mrs ? Brown from memory) and taken out by a gentleman (i have the names but can not remember atm) he moved further up north then was taken to London area and became a baker, i do not know what happened to his other siblings or why he was placed, what happened to his mother or who she was
