St Mary's RC Orphanage for Girls Richmond Hill
I am seeking information about St Mary's Orphanage Richmond Hill. Priscilla Hudson dob 1891 and her sisters Maria and Winifred were listed in 1901 census as being there as orphans. Parents Jesse Hudson (1856-1917) and Catherine nee Mcintyre(1855-1904) were listed in 1901 census as living at 69 Westgate Keighley. I believe this was a overcrowded poor area also called the Pinfold. Does anyone understand why the girls would be listed as orphans when parents were still alive? Was St Mary's like a school or alternate workhouse accomdation?
