Can anyone please tell me if Witherslack boarding school has always been for pupils with special needs. I am thinking possibly in the late 1970s to late 1980s. I believe that this school or group of schools are base in the North East and Cumbria areas.

I am trying to find out anything at all about the Prust family in Yorkshire. I am particularly interested in Wortley and Pontefract. I would like to know any connections between the Prusts, Holmes and Richardson families.
Thank you :D
This does look like these people are the ones that I am looking for. Frances Gargan (Fanny) was present at Margarets death in 1894.
The children mentioned on the 1891 census do not appear to be Edward & Margarets. I will have to have a good look around now to find them. I wonder who...
