Long Grove Asylum

Epsom Cluster #4

WHITAKER, Isabella

b.1876 – d.1917 Isabella was quite hard to find – was she married or single? Once I found a record, I worked around it and found her birth registered in 1876. Tracing her family back, her parents, Ruth Kimberley and James Scuffham Whitaker were married at St George Southwark in June 1862. The marriage lasted… read more »

BYFORD, Walter

b.1859-d.1910 A summary of the evidence it has been possible to locate for Walter suggests an ordinary life. 1850s Walter was born on January 11th, 1859, in Hoxton, London. His parents were Walter Byford b.1821 in Clare, Suffolk and Margaret who was born in East India in 1832. Walter was baptised at St Leonards Church,… read more »

AVES, Thomas

b.1862-d.1910 Introduction Thomas’ life is straightforward as far as we can tell. There is little in the evidence to suggest anything other than a normal family life, which ended too early and so sadly in 1910. Life would have been simple for the Aves family and Thomas was a labourer for his whole short adult… read more »

SAWKINS, Thomas

b.1865-d.1918 Birth Although it has not been possible to find Thomas Sawkins’ official birth registration, it may be assumed from censuses and his marriage certificate that he was born in 1865, in Shoreditch, to Thomas Christopher Sawkins and his wife Hannah (née Jenks). Both his parents were from the East End of London. Thomas’s parents… read more »

SCOTT, Alexander

b.1861-d.1918 Early life Note the name Ann, Anna and Annie are synonymous throughout the story. Alexander Scott was born in Marylebone in the first quarter of 1861, the first child of William Cairns Scott, a tailor, and his wife, Anna Bella Scott (née McKenzie). At the time of Alexander’s birth, William and Anna were living… read more »

RAINE, James George

b.1882-d.1917 1880s James George Raine was born In Bermondsey, London in Q2 of 1882 in the registration district of St Olave. I found out later, in my research from school documents, that he was born on the 28th April 1882. James was born to Arthur and Hannah Raine nee. Schmalzlen who married in 1876. It… read more »

HANCOCK, John Charles

b.1869-d.1908 Introduction Initially I searched for John (Charles) Hancock born circa 1869. There were several John’s – far too many to research and only a couple of John Charles who were born in the north of England and seemed to me to be unlikely candidates. I decided to send for John’s death certificate to see… read more »

PENN, Rose Esther

b.1886-d.1917 Initial research difficulties The search for a Rose Esther Penn buried at Horton Estate Cemetery on 24th April 1917, aged 30, proved to be fruitless but research for a William George Joseph Penn has found perhaps a possible trail. William had a sister Rose Lavinia Penn born around December 1886 and her story could… read more »

JAKEMAN, George

b.1853-d.1908 George Jakeman died on 31st March 1908 in Long Grove Asylum and was buried at Horton Cemetery on the 4th April 1908.

BOUTTELL, Catherine

b.1849-d.1910 Childhood Catherine was born in the June quarter of 1849 in South Witham, Lincolnshire to Robert Selby (b.1813) and his wife Elizabeth (née Merry b.1820). In the 1851 Census, Robert is an innkeeper and the family live at the Angel Inn in South Witham. Catherine’s siblings are Elizabeth Mary (b.1841), William Sisson (b.1843), Anne… read more »

HILLIER, Emily

b.1857-d.1910 Introduction Tracing Emily back in time from her death in 1910 reveals that she was institutionalised from as early as 1881, when she would have been no more than about 24 years old. Definitively finding her before that point has proved challenging. What took her to the first asylum also remains unknown. For that… read more »

HENNESSEY, Charles

b.1870 – d.1917 Long Grove records show Charles as being buried on 27th November 1917 age 45 – giving a birth date about 1872. 1870s The only Charles Hennessey I found between 1870 and 1875 was actually registered in the June quarter of 1870 in Camberwell, mother’s maiden name Bryant. This fits well with the… read more »

CUTHBERT, Alfred

b.1861-d.1918 Alfred Cuthbert was born in Ipswich in the third quarter of 1861, the third child and second son of Richard Fleetwood Cuthbert, a coach painter, and his wife, Ann (née Garnham).

William was born… read more »

MANNOCK, Walter

b.1876-d.1918 Introduction This is a sad story of a child born in a poor area of London. Throughout his life he was in and out of various institutions and spent his last ten years in Long Grove Asylum. Pre Birth Walter’s father, William Mannock was born in Lancashire in 1833. In 1841 he is living… read more »
