I was in a children's home named Maryland or Marysland somewhere in the U.K.. I was there from 1948 - 1951. I was born in Reading, England and have since relocated to California U.S.A. I can only remember two first names of children that were there during my stay, the names are, Tony and Evilyn. At that time most kids called me Bobby. If any one remembers being there at the time frame mentioned please contact me by email.
I was born in Sunnyside Maternity Hospital, Cheltenham in January 1950. I was placed in St. Catherines Childrens Home, Berkeley Place, Cheltenham shortly afterwards and then adopted in April 1952. I am seeking information regarding my mother Gwyneth. At the time I believe she worked at The Fleece Hotel in Gloucester. Also there was a Mrs Price who had some connection with the orphanage.
I have recently found out I have a sister like me she was adopted from birth. My sister who I am searching for was born Andrina Mary Cheape she was born in Clements park unmarried mother home in Lochee, Dundee in `1965. Does any know how to search for there file.

I am looking for information about my mother, Kathleen Ellen Radbourne (Oct 8, 1917). She is going to be 100 years old this year and is trying to find out any information about her birth parents.

Does anyone remember my mum Dorothea (Usually know as Dorothy or Dot) Doyle? She was house mother for Willow at The Hollies, Lamorbey, Sidcup. I know she worked there in 1955 as I have an envelope with a postmark for that year from a letter sent to her. She loved her time working there and came to form such an attachment with the children in her care. When I was a child I loved hearing her stories about the children and, even now, hope they have gone on to have a good life.

I’m trying to find out what happened to three ancestors who were admitted to Newington Workhouse, Westmoreland Road, Walworth, London in 1922. They were discharged on the same day to either ‘RC Homes’ or ‘R Homes’ – I’ve seen two different people’s handwriting but still can’t make out exactly what it says.
Does anyone know which homes it means that they’ve been sent to, please? christinebessey@yahoo.co.uk

EDITOR: Roman Catholic Homes perhaps? CofE children and RC children were often sent to different homes.

Does anybody know anything about a residential school that my 82 year old mother attended, that she refers to as "Penylan training home Cardiff". She was taken from her home in Mid-Devon to reside at this facility sometime between 1935 - 1950.
Hi, I'm looking for any records available about my late uncl Peter g Marshment born in Swansea 1928 he was orphaned in 1933/5 and seems to have disappeared almost, until I found a marriage for him in 1950 thanks in advance for any help
My Mother, has told me about a place she calls "Penylan training home Cardiff". She recalls that she went there before she started primary school, so this would be sometime around 1938. However, she is now 82 and a bit forgetful, and may be getting her dates wrong, but never forgets the same name of the establsihment. She could have been there any time between birth and aged 16, so 1935 - 1951. I have not been able to trace the premises, but have found an area called penylan at Cardiff.
