  1. Orphanages

    Has anyone heard of the St. Joseph and St. Anne Orphanage? In the 1901 census I came across a possible grand-uncle who was listed as an inmate. The orphanage was in the County of Kent in the Town of Farnborough.

  4. Where might this photo be? And Habit?

    Does anyone have an idea if this habit is of the Sisters of Mercy? It is believed in the family that Elizabeth got to be a Mother Superior in a convent in England. Looking at the back of the photo it is stamped velox several times so probably dates from 1940-50s. Elizabeth...

  9. St Pelagia's Convent, Highgate 1956

    I believe that the mother of my nephew gave birth to a daughter, in St Pelagia's convent in September 1956. Do any records of this 'Home for destitute Catholic mothers' still exist? Are they accessible online or in record offices? Even an admission register would help to confirm this!
