Good Evening all

Ozibird, I'm a little confused. The thread you posted at 19:55 last night shows the census of a Gill family in the 1911 census. You follow this with a sentence saying we can eliminate this one as these may be the then give names of marriages. Did you mean eliminate the census or the marriages????


Ozibird Report 5 Dec 2012 19:22

Eliminate that family as it looks like the father was a William Henry which doesn't fit your info.



Julie Report 5 Dec 2012 21:02

Ok thank you Ozi. Does that mean the other Rhoda Gill in the childrens home should be the one I should concentrate on.

I also found an ancestor (one twin girl aged 3 who was 'admitted' to Yerbury Road School...beginning to realise that this wasn't an ordinary school...was it a Children's home or some kind of 'Mental Institution?

Any knowledge???

Mrs Rosie .............

what makes you think it was not an ordinary school??

If you Google it, you will find that it seems to have been a perfectly ordinary school, with children starting school at the age of 3 or 4, as they still do now

from one reference on Google ..............

"Yerbury Primary School. Opened in 1884 by the School Board for London as Yerbury Road Board School. An extension was built in 1895. It has been a school for primary age children since the 1920s."

Board schools were set up in the 1870s to provide a basic schooling for poor children and were paid for from local rates.

Middle class children went to grammar schools or private academies.

Young richer children were often taught at home by a private tutor. Boys then went to boarding schools.


YERBURY ROAD SCHOOL [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
Became Yerbury Primary in 1951

Upper Holloway

you can see a photo of the school on this site;jsessionid=868BFCF073478BFFBD2EC05D91EB810A?service=external/Item&sp=I9%3AYerbury+Road+Primary+School+%28L.B.+of+Islington%29%3A%3AY&sp=194171&sp=X
