battle workhouse
I am trying to find out why and for how long, my father Frank Hook, his parents, and his siblings were in the Battle workhouse in the 1911 census. Can anyone put me onto the right track, please.
I have a conundrum with two missing people. In the 1881 census an entry for an Emile H Smale is shown born Sutton Surrey abt 1878 the son of Thomas & Emma. In the 1891 census there is an entry for a Charles E H Smale born Sutton also abt 1878. I have not been able to locate a birth for either Emile H or Charles E H. Charles E H should have been on the 1881 census if born around 1878. It is possible that they are the same person but changed name usage. However I have not been able to locate a death, marriage or other census entry for either of them. There is a death entry for a Charles E Smale at Hellingly (not far from Battle) in 1914 but the certificate indicates it is not the same person. Any ideas?
