Thanks for this. There are actually two Joseph Felm(m)ings of the same age and both with links to Bethnal Green in the Poor Law records.

The son of Richard and Henrietta who used the alias James Evans and ended up in an asylum is the one mentioned in City of London removal records (these are posted on casebook and forums somewhere)

Then there is Joseph Flem(m)ing, son of George and Sarah, baptised and registered at birth as 'Edward Joseph' but who used the name Joseph all his life. He can be traced in and out of the Bethnal Green workhouse records from being a boy, along his sister Sarah. He was apparently the apprentice shoemaker (his father was a shoemaker) in the settlement records and also the 1891 'French polisher' in Poplar workhouse. This Joseph lived on Bethnal Green Rd at some point too.

These records and research separating the two men are also posted on forums somewhere but I can't link you to them at the moment as forums is down.
Hope this helps a little though.
