Deanhouse Workhouse- National Census 1891

I have just completed listing the details of the 1891 Census for Netherthong and Deanhouse and it seems appropriate to give a separate chapter for the census of the Deanhouse Workhouse for the same year. The  full details of the history of the Workhouse from the beginning in 1864  to the end in 1968 are covered in specific chapters in this history.

The census included  the staff responsible for the running of the Workhouse plus details on all the inmates. These inmates, regardless of sex, were all classified as paupers. Their details included full name, marital status, age, previous occupation and place of birth. Ten of the females were classified as Imbeciles and I have indicated this by putting an Imb in their marital status column. Thirteen of the men were also classified as imbeciles and, in addition, two were further classified as Idiots. Three of the inmates were blind.

John Beastie was the Master  and he was married , aged 42, and  born in Birkenhead. His wife Annie, also aged 42, was the Matron and came from West Derby. They had a son, Archie, who was 10 years old and born in Lockwood. Edith Grant, aged 17, was their step-daughter and acted as assistant matron. She was also born in Lockwood.. Elizabeth Lillie was listed as an officer and fulfilled the role of nurse. She was single, aged 32, and came from Broughton. The last listed staff member was Jane French who was single, aged 33, and came from Crook. She was the laundress.
