Ashfield "strays" found in local Workhouses


Here is a list of people found in local Workhouses on the various census returns, who gave their birthplace as being within the Ashfield area. The workhouses I am aiming to search are those at Mansfield, Basford, Radford, Nottingham, Belper (Derbys.) and Chesterfield (Derbys.). I am happy to receive information of any persons found in other workhouses who come from Ashfield.

The names are arranged alphabetically within each census year. Anyone who finds an entry they are interested in is advised to check against the original entry.
