|Axbridge Workhouse - Case Studies of Inmates|
published by Pat Hase on Sat, 16/05/2020 - 11:57
I have uploaded a document which covers case studies of some of the inmates of Axbridge Workhouse. It includes names such as ADDICOTT, ALDERMAN, BAILEY, BROOKS, BURR, COOMBS, DAUNTON, FOGARTY and of course HASE! It was originally part of my thesis to show how the Workhouse impacted upon the lives of its residents. Many thanks to those who assisted me back in 1998 when this was put together. It can be found as the last entry under Axbridge Poor Law Union

I have just uploaded part of my study of Axbridge Union Workhouse submitted for my MA in 1998. I hope that you will finds parts interesting and useful - I will add the Appendices later. I set out to consider the symbiotic relationship between family and local history and used responses from fellow family historians in compiling this document. Some Workhouse inmates are named and inferences drawn about their connection with the Workhouse. You can find it at the bottom of this page
or under "Axbridge Poor Law Union" on the home page Menu.
