Volume 4 - House of Refuge, 1869-1882

This register lists children who were committed to the House between October 1869 and September 1882. The register lists the child's name, case number, date of commitment, reason for commitment, by whom they were committed, age, times arrested, birthplace, nationality/ethnicity, further family and character information (such as living parents, tobacco/alcohol use, educational levels), and recommendations for placement. The searchable scans are available as one volume, broken up into smaller segments, or as individual pages. Researchers are advised that the transcribed information (available as a PDF and in Excel, including CSV files for individual pages) does not reflect all of the information contained in the ledgers for each child (for example, tobacco use, living parents, etc).
