This orphan has been claimed by: Lesley French

George was my great grandmother's brother. I understand that my grandmother Sarah (my mum's Granny Finn) searched for her brother and sister at the end of her life without success.

This orphan has been claimed by: Viv Finn

As for Lesley French, George was the brother of my g/grandmother, Sarah Gregory. Their elder sister, Edith was also in the Orphan School. We know quite a lot about Sarah but nothing of Edith or George apart from who they went to after leaving the School. Can't find deaths, marriages etc. anywhere.

It would also be interesting to find what Sarah did between the time of leaving the School and having her first child in her early 20's. Can anyone help.
