The Stone House

28th June 2011

Anthony Phillips:

Not sure if you can help me. Searching for wifes Great Grandmother Louisa Stimson. Although I have birth date I cannot find a birth record but would like to know more about what her role would have been as she gave birth to her children at Stone House. One of her children was born there in 1925. I take it that she would not have been a slave to the workhouse and that this was a cottage hospital at this period. I am also unable to find any further info on where she worked as she stated on her sons birth certificate that she was a domestic servant at Clarence House, Chandler Road, Bexhill. What was this place? Was it just your normal everyday domestic household and she was employed by them. Going back to the hosptal, I have photos of her with groups of children as if she is some sort of nanny. Would this have been typical at a cottage hospital and would I find any record of her there? Sorry to ask so many questions but I am having difficulty outlining her life whilst in these places.
Hope you can help.
Thank you
