smile.gif Hello. Three of my cousins, Mae, John, and Veronica (Vera) Cairns were sent there after their Mother died. This would be in the mid Forties. Although they came from a large family, it was weirdly thought that as their Father was widowed they would be better off in Bellevue. Iremember visiting them there as a very young child and taking them, I,ve been told by Mae (now Cleary) their first banana. Sadly, Vera has died, and John has been given the accolade of M.B.E. They left Bellevue around 1949 after their father remarried. They then went on to have siblings David, Catherine, and Francis. Cannot belive that three young children were sent to an Orphanage, by a large family!!!

  Was that the dog that went rabid and started biting all in the play area?

  Hi Jim

I have not been on the site for a long time as I was trying to trace family history another way. I have come to a dead end and have pretty much decided to stop searching. If you have any photos or information on bellevue I would love to see/hear them. Dad was left at beelvue by his single mother around 1931 and stayed there for about three years.

Hi,

We believe our Mum was in Belle Vue, between about 1933, aged 10, on a daily basis, after her adoptive Mother died and then full time from about 1937, aged 14, after her adoptive Father died, leaving about the age of 17. Her name was Elizabeth (Betty) McCallum.

We have been in contact with Belle Vue to try to confirm this, as we are trying to find details of Mum's real family, however they state that the records they have for around that time, have been destroyed or damaged.

We have photo's of Mum and others in and around what we believe to be Belle Vue, however, Mum passed away in 1979, so obviously is unable to confirm the details we have. I would be happy to forward copies of these to you.

I would also like to hear from anyone else who had relatives at Belle Vue around that time or knew Sister Agnes, who I have been told, Mum was very friendly with and in fact travelled to London in the mid sixties to meet up with.

Jim

  I am 65 years old. I was in Bellevue at age 4/5 my memories of this institution are that of beatings cold baths and other sadistic treatment, one young friend I remember was made to wear a dress to school, I was lucky that I had 4 older sisters to protect me.
