This is St Philip’s Church now – the Royal London Hospital Medical Library. The grey plaque on the wall on the left is dated July 1888 and commemorates the initial re-build of the church. I think the parts of the building in yellow/tan brickwork are surviving parts of the old church building.

The training ship Exmouth was lent by the Royal Navy to The Metropolitian Asylum board to give pauper boys an education,and train them in seamanship from the age of 12. It was not the only ship of its kind. It was a fantastic opportunity for the pauper boys to improve their chances in life, many joining the Royal Navy OR Merchant Marines.The first ship was used in 1876.

Hi Abby

It's just the record sheet of George Hutchinson b c 1866 who was on the Exmouth training ship in 1881 that Ed highlighted at the beginning of this thread. There's not much extra information but I thought it might be useful for someones research if they were interested in this man.
It basically gives a record of his time training. He received a medal for good conduct. He was only little, 4ft 11" at age 16 but maybe he hadn't finished growing by then!

Abby,a friend reckons that a boy can shoot up 2ft in one year age 14/15/16 so he may have been as tall as Joseph Flemming in the end! ;)
I'm still kinda curious about Ambrose Hutchinson's son for GH. Not saying he is, just interested because he died before 1911 and never married, so his signature has never been up for comparison and he lived in Church St Spitalfields IIRC.

Were there TWO George Hutchinsons witnessing? Because one has already been found and ID:d via his signature... ;)
