North Witchford Union Workhouse, civil parish Doddington

Charleston, South Carolina, US
Hello All:

juliejtp gave me an excellent lead regarding a 'possible' for my Brickwall, Richard Clarke.

Sunday, June 6th, 1841, a Richard Clarke, aged 10, Labourer's Child, born in the county Cambridgeshire, is in the census record for North Witchford. I don't see any reference to his mother or father in that place.

Although I have searched several sites, and read the excellent general Workhouse.org website, it seems that North Witchford does not have a lot of remaining records - 'signing in' or 'signing out' registers, for example.

As I cannot see Eliza HANCOCK/CLARKE at North Witchford, and she was recorded as 'dead' bef. 1856, I thought it may be useful to find a death record for her before 1841, or some lead, through Workhouse documents, where in the Shire Richard was born.

Is anyone aware of an archive resource for North Witchford Workhouse?

Cheers, Colin
