Hi Joshua,

I'm not totally sure to be honest. It was the George Yard Charity School (Infants), which I have always assumed was the one that had been the 'ragged school'. They transferred there from St Jude's. Their father was at various times recorded as a hawker/coster/general dealer and the family had previously lived in Wentworth Street, Flower and Dean Street and Keat Street (Thrawl Street).

GGM remarried in 1891 and the family then moved to Shovel Alley off Cable Street. On her marriage cert her occupation was shown as 'bed-maker' - most likely in a local doss-house I would imagine.

Well it looks like the infants school was actually in Angel Alley, both this and the ragged school are marked as part of the George Yard Mission on the '89 Goad map. I can't link to that but this OS map hopefully shows the schools;

Unless she actually manufactured bed frames, or stuffed mattresses? But most likely as you say.

Thanks, Dave.
Cor blimey! What's that nebulous horse head looking thing in that 'photo!

Just a coincidence

Cheers Sam.

Thanks, Joshua.

I hadn't seen the 'Infants School' in Angel Alley identified as such on an OS map before. I'm not sure when that was built, it wasn't there in 1874 but seems to have been by 1890, so that could well be the one my grandfather attended.

After the death of my GG they moved to 4, Angel Alley at the N (Wentworth Street) end, but by then the boys had apparently left GY school.
