England & Wales, Paupers In Workhouses 1860
In 1860, the House of Commons ordered for a report to be taken of each workhouse in England and Wales. This report detailed every long-term resident of the workhouses, and the reasons for their residency. A long-term resident was an adult, above the age of 16, who had been inhabiting a workhouse for five or more years. There are over 14,000 records in this brand-new collection to explore.
Two new titles and updates to a further 17 have been added to the newspaper archive this week.
