I must admit that this is the only birth I can see for the children's births pre 1861. I wonder if the others were registered.

Births Mar 1859 (>99%)

Eringobragh1916 Report 25 Mar 2012 11:36

You are asking about Sister Mary Lawrence (Dominicans)..Minories School Jesmond....

I am not aware of a "Minories School" Jesmond...however there was Nazareth House Sandyford Rd (area known locally as the Minories)..but that was run by the Sisters of Nazareth and was a Childrens Home.....


Eringobragh1916 Report 25 Mar 2012 15:23

Will have another search around....As far as I am aware the Dominican Sisters weren't attached to St Dominics Church as such..........St Dominics (for ref) is just over Byker Bridge going into Ncle.
Were did you find "Minories School" situated before it was sold....?


MarieCeleste Report 25 Mar 2012 16:46

Kane - La Sagesse has only very recently been sold.

The chap you met couldn't have gone there as it was girls only.

I was baptised at St Dominics and I'm pretty sure there were no nuns associated.

I was a convent girl myself in the area and am struggling to think what school it could be .....

I think (but not 100% sure) that the building you're referring to is now the Leonard Cheshire home. My OH does think there may have been a boys school there about 50 to 60 years ago.

sorry im incorrect
